Deputy Fire Marshal Ken Foster has been with Lebanon Fire District for 31 years. Ken has been DFM and Team Leader for the Lebanon Fire Investigation Team for the past four years. Ken is a NFPA Fire Investigator and IAAI Fire Investigator Technician.

November 18th, 2020, Lebanon Fire District responded to a residential fire where it was determined the Fire Investigation Team would be activated. The fire origin came from under a tri-plex, producing a considerable amount of black smoke and no heat. Determining cause is where the team began a study of the electrical system and plumbing. Ken will be sharing the details of the investigation, testing, and out of state resources used to solve this case.
