BOYD ROAD - A Cannelton volunteer firefighter suffered first- and second-degree burns to his arms and legs Friday evening while fighting a blaze on Boyd Road. James Robert Lawson was transported to University Hospital in Louisville, Ky. Friday night and was listed in fair condition Monday in the hospital's burn unit.
Cannelton Fire Chief Jerry Harris said Lawson, who was helping carry hoses because he was not wearing protective turnout gear, was hit by a ball of fire that erupted without warning from the home's garage.
