Lebanon fire displaces tenants

LEBANON - Firefighters quickly extinguished a fire Saturday that has displaced tenants of at least one apartment, authorities say.

Arriving firefighters found smoke coming from a second-floor window in a rear apartment of the two-story building at 91A Hanover St. shortly after 11:15 a.m., according to the fire department. The fire was declared under control about a half hour later.

The remainder of the back of the building sustained minor smoke and water damage. The tenants of at least one unit have been displaced. Fire officials and the property management company were evaluating the other seven units for smoke and water damage to determine if those units could be reoccupied.

The American Red Cross responded and assisted all displaced residents with lodging and other assistance.

No injuries were reported.

Fire units from Hanover and Hartford, Vt., assisted at the scene while Enfield firefighters provided station coverage.

The cause is under investigation but not considered suspicious, authorities said.
