2 Marshall County burn victims taken to the MED

MARSHALL COUNTY, MS (WMC-TV) - Officials are looking into the circumstances that sent two burn victims to the MED Wednesday night.

Marshall County authorities responded to a 9-1-1 call in the 39-hundred block of Higdon Road around 5 o'clock Wednesday evening.

Authorities said that on the 9-1-1 call a man claimed his wife had been burned by a Kerosene lamp that tipped over.

Two adults were transported to the MED.  A female burn victim sustained burns to 40 to 50 percent of her body and at last check was in critical condition at the MED. A male burn victim was also taken to the MED. He sustained minor burns and was listed in non-critical condition.

The Marshall County Fire Investigator told Action News 5 the female victim says she was intentionally set on fire. Authorities plan to look into those claims.
