A furniture store in Lebanon received $75,000-$80,000 worth of damage in an early morning fire. Lebanon Fire Department said a passerby notified them of the water gong from Defelice Furniture Store just after 3:30 am. Upon arrival, firefighters found water flowing from sprinkler system. The Sprinklers had extinguished the fire that originated in the desk area of the showroom floor, prior to the fire department’s arrival. The lack of early notification was a contributing factor to the estimated damage in smoke and water damages to the building and contents.
The fire is not considered suspicious and is under investigation by the Lebanon Fire Department Fire Prevention Division. (603) 448-8810
