GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A family member says the woman who was injured in a fire south of Hastings last week remains sedated in intensive care.
Kidder remained in critical condition Monday. Her family told 24 Hour News 8 on Sunday that she was expected to remain sedated for at least a few more days. She sustained second- and third-degree burns and because of serious damage to her lungs needs help from a machine to breathe.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help cover Kidder’s medical and recovery expenses.
A passerby spotted the fire early Wednesday morning and called 911, then used a garden hose to try to contain it until firefighters arrived.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
