Teen Injured In Fire Continues To Improve

A central Kentucky teenager, injured in a fire, continues to fight for his life, but his family says he is showing signs of improvement.

16-year-old Timothy Desjadon is in critical condition at UK hospital.

He suffered severe burns on Sunday while trying to escape a house fire in Winchester.

He's been in a coma most of the week, but his family tells us he did open his eyes Wednesday night. They're hopeful he will recover.

Investigators say an electrical cord sparked the fire.
