Injuries In Garage Fire Appear Not To Be Life Threatening, Official Says

Posted: Updated:

The woman burned in a garage fire and possible explosion in the town of Brownville Tuesday night suffered what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries.

"I do not believe it's life-threatening," said Joe Plummer, who's director of Jefferson County's Office of Fire and Emergency Management.

Although it's unclear if there was an explosion, Plummer called it "a rapidly moving fire."

The victim's child called 911 after the 38 year old woman came into the Carr Road home and said she'd been burned.

The victim was airlifted to a Syracuse hospital for treatment.

Plummer said the fire started toward the rear of the garage.

The cause remains under investigation, but Plummer said it doesn't appear to be suspicious.
