Girl injured after tossing gas on fire
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.
