     LEBANON (Fox 19) ---- Fire investigators released an update late Saturday on the Lebanon barn fire:   

- The Ohio Department of Commerce Division of State Fire Marshal has concluded its on-scene investigation of this morning's fatal fire at the horse barn in Lebanon.

 - The fire originated in the northwest corner of the structure and then spread throughout the rest of the barn. The specific origin of the fire will not be released as this is an ongoing investigation.

- The cause of the fire is UNDETERMINED. However, investigators have ruled out criminal intent.
