In West Lebanon, IN, firefighters from 17 surrounding fire departments converged on a pallet fire that broke out just before noon yesterday. Reynolds Wood Products started the fire to dispose of wooden pallets but as the wind picked up, the fire raged out of control.

John Terhune, West Lebanon Fire Chief, stated, “It started as a controlled burn. It got out of hand because it is so windy.

The American Red Cross of Evansville – Wabash Valley covers the Lebanon area along with 33 counties in three states.

We will be broadcasting LIVE along with our sister stations and Eyewitness News 25 throughout the day from the American Red Cross Evansville-Wabash Valley Region to help raise funds for recent midwest and southern United States storm relief and now those affected by the Lebanon fire.
To help those affected by disasters like tornadoes, floods and other crises, make a donation to American Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
