Lebanon firefighter Rodney Princell waits for water at a car fire Friday morning at the Speedway station on North Lebanon Street. The driver, Rebecca Saulmon, and her 18-month-old child escaped unharmed. Rebecca called her father, Dave Saulmon, and told him she “smelled something” and pulled into the station to find smoke coming from the engine compartment. “I just put new tires on it,” Dave Saulmon said. A broken fuel line was believed to be the source of the fire. LFD Deputy Chief Mike Baird said Speedway employees shut off the gas pumps as a precaution.
