Boy Improving After Being Burned Playing With Fire

A young boy is recovering from serious burns after he was injured while playing.

Police in Russell Springs say five-year-old Caleb Farris and his friends were playing with fire and a water bottle filled with a liquid accelerant.

Police say the bottle caught fire, scaring a child who then threw it in the air. The bottle fell on Farris, causing second and third degree burns on his chest and face.

He was flown to UK Hospital with critical injuries, but was upgraded to serious condition Wednesday.
