Cost of city fires down; natural disasters up for 2013

The cost of fire damage in the city of Lebanon last year was about half the normal total, Lebanon Fire Chief Jason Lee shared during his end-of-the-year report at Monday’s Lebanon Board of Works meeting.

Lee said the total dollar loss due to fires in 2013 was $525,000, and it is usually more than $1 million.

But the cost resulting from natural disasters was significantly higher due to the Nov. 7 tornado that came through the city — which caused more than $28.2 million in damages.
