BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A child burned in a Billings garage fire over the weekend is in critical condition and Billings fire marshals are still investigating the cause of the flames.
The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1EyL0Kf ) that the child and an adult man were injured when an explosive fire broke out Friday night in the garage of a home northeast of downtown Billings.
Both victims were flown to Salt Lake City for burn treatment. Fire officials say the man has been released from the hospital.
A Billings Fire Marshall spokeswoman says the fire caused propane cylinders to explode, destroying the garage. Damages to the property are estimated at $200,000.
A crowd funding web page for the victims had raised more than $17,000 as of Monday.
