Late-Morning Fire Damages  Lebanon Apartment Building

Lebanon — Several tenants were temporarily displaced when a fire broke out Saturday morning at a Hanover Street apartment building, the Lebanon Fire Department said.

The fire was reported at 11:15 a.m. in a second-floor apartment in the back of the two-story building at 91A Hanover St., fire officials said. The building has eight apartments.

The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes. Firefighters and building management were evaluating other units Saturday afternoon to see if smoke and water damage was severe enough to require tenants to move out temporarily.

The fire is not considered suspicious but is still under investigation.

No one was injured, and the Red Cross helped displaced tenants find temporary shelter. Hanover and Hartford firefighters responded to the scene, while Enfield firefighters provided backup coverage in Lebanon.
