A Lebanon couple is looking to rebuild after a house fire damaged much of their Lisa Avenue home on Feb. 18.

Neither Anthony nor Melissa Carrington were home at the time of the fire.

“We lost everything,” Melissa Carrington said. “We couldn’t salvage anything out of there.”

The couple are staying at the Hampton Inn for now, and they are in the process of finding a place to rent until they are able to move back into their home at 641 Lisa Avenue. Melissa said that could be between four and six months.

The Lebanon Fire Department responded to the scene, and they determined it was an electrical fire, Melissa Carrington said.

Since the fire, she said they have received support from the Lebanon United Methodist Church, family, relatives and co-workers.

Anyone who may wish to donate furniture or clothing can contact Melissa Carrington at 402-4509.

Melissa wears size 20 pants, XXL shirts and size 10 shoes

Anthony wears 38-32 pants, XL shirts and size 12 shoes.
