Fire chief says Quality Inn blaze appears to be arson

Lebanon — A preliminary investigation at the former Quality Inn in Lebanon suggests a fire there Tuesday evening was intentional.

Heavy black smoke from the east side of the empty building was reported by a traveler pumping fuel at the Flying J at 7:26 p.m. Tuesday. Two Lebanon Police units were on the scene a minute later, and the first fire engine arrived within four minutes, said Lebanon Fire Chief Jason Lee.
