Man Who Rescued 2 Small Children Identified
This afternoon, Lebanon Fire Chief Chris Christopoulos released the following update for an early morning fire at Twin Pines Lane Housing:
“All of the patients transported to DHMC have been treated and released from the hospital. All displaced occupants will be housed off-site with assistance from the Red Cross and Twin Pines Housing through the holiday weekend to allow for the property owners to clean and make repairs to the three units that did not suffer fire damage.
“The identity of the 24-year-old neighbor who crawled into the burning apartment and rescued an 18-month-old female and a 3-year-old female is Devin Isaacs of Pine Tree Lane. While he should be commended for his brave actions, we do not encourage bystanders to enter a hazardous environment,” said Christopoulos.
Fire Investigators from the State of New Hampshire Fire Marshal’s Office and the Lebanon Fire Department have determined the area of origin of the fire to be in the kitchen. The cause of the fire remains undetermined at this time.
Custody of the building has been turned over to Twin Pines Housing.
