Girl injured after tossing gas on fire

        INDEPENDENCE — A 16-year-old Independence girl was severely burned Monday night when a backyard bonfire flared up.

        Allison Embree of the 600 block of Willow Drive was transported to Shriners Burns Institute in Cincinnati, where she was in critical condition late Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

        Firefighters arrived about 6:40 p.m. and found the teen lying on the ground near the bonfire, said Independence firefighter Scott Breeze.

        She had sustained second-degree burns to 65 percent of her body after she threw gasoline on the fire, he said.
