A fire broke out in a Lebanon home early Tuesday morning.
According to the Lebanon Fire District, at about 2 a.m. a woman heard a smoke detector going off while showering. The resident then noticed smoke coming from around the bathroom door, so she escaped through a window.
The woman saw flames coming from her bedroom and tried to put it out with a garden hose. Officials says she then notified family members who lived down the street.
The resident’s uncle arrived and entered the home through a bedroom window where he encountered heavy smoke with heat and could see a fire near the wall. The family member attempted to extinguish the blaze with a fire extinguisher and threw a burning mattress outside, through the window. The resident then called 911.
