Infant burned in cooking accident


The Sebring Fire Department was called to a house on N. 17th Street Wednesday after a grease fire started in the kitchen of a home.

The Fire Chief said a man was cooking on the stove when a fire started, and the man attempted to carry the pan out of the house.

He dropped the pan causing the grease to splash on his 4-month-old son.

The infant suffered burns over 40% of his body and is currently at Akron Children's Hospital's burn unit.

The incident was ruled accidental so there won't be any charges.
