LEBANON, Ind. — An early morning mobile home fire kills a man and injures two others.

The fire started around 1:30 a.m. Saturday in the 900 block of Bibler Street as a structure fire with confirmed entrapment. Lebanon police were the first to arrive, but couldn’t go inside because the mobile home was fully engulfed in flames.

One of the victims was later transferred to Eskinazi Hospital.  Three law enforcement officers are also being treated at Witham Hospital for minor injuries.
