Fire investigators were back at a Winchester home on Tuesday. The fire sent a teenage boy to the hospital with serious burns.

Investigators now say the fire started between two beds in an upstairs bedroom.

We're also learning that the victim, 16-year-old Timothy Desjaon, is still in critical condition, but according to family members, he's making progress.

Doctors first thought they would be forced to amputate the young man's arms but they have since found a pulse.

Fire fighters are still investigating how the fire started but don't suspect foul play. The fire started early Sunday morning at a home on Georgia Street.

Timothy Desjaon was the only person home at the time.
