A Lebanon man and his dog escaped a house fire early Friday morning.

According to the Lebanon Police Dispatch records, Tom Glasscock called at 3:09 a.m. to report his house at 420 Hwy. 289 was on fire. Glasscock told the dispatcher that he and his dog were in the house when the smoke alarm went off.

“His dog woke him up,” Lebanon Fire Chief Ricky Mattingly said.

Glasscock told the dispatcher he did not know what happened or what caused the fire. Both Glasscock and the dog were out of the house when he called the dispatch, and no injuries were reported.

Mattingly said the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

The Lebanon Fire Department was dispatched, and Bradfordsville and Raywick fire departments were dispatched a few minutes later. Marion County EMS also responded to the scene.

Firefighters remained on the scene until 7:57 a.m. combating the fire.
