Smoky fire knocked down at The Boulders apartment complex in Lebanon
First alarm brings Lebanon, Hanover and Hartford to the scene
LEBANON - A smoky fire in the front entryway of one of the apartment buildings at The Boulders complex on Wolf Road brought firefighters from Lebanon, Hanover and Hartford to the scene just after 7 a.m. this morning.
Lebanon Fire Chief Chris Christopoulos reported that heavy smoke was visible as he pulled up to the front of Building F and the crew of Lebanon Engine 9 pulled an inch-and-three-quarter pre-connected hose line off their attack pumper and contained the fire to the stairwell in the entry area.

Firefighters searched the building and assisted several people in evacuating, including one resident who relies upon a home oxygen system who ended being evaluated on-scene for exposure to smoke.
The situation was declared under control in just under 20 minutes time and in a press release the fire department said that while the cause remains under investigation it is not considered suspicious.
None of the occupants were displaced from the building as a result of the fire and the property was promptly turned back over to the management company.
