Mobile Home Fire Sends Three To Hospital

A mobile home fire Tuesday morning on Brush Creek Road, about 6 miles northwest of Clay City in Powell County injured a paramedic and caused three people to suffer burns. Criss Chaney said he woke up to discover his neighbor's trailer engulfed in flames. Chaney entered the burning trailer through the front door and found Keeper Watkins on the floor. Chaney helped Watkins outside, where Watkins begged him to go back in and get his girlfriend, 24 year old Heather Bailey. Chaney returned and pulled an unconscious Bailey out and covered her in blankets until emergency crews arrived. Bailey, who was burned on her back from her neck to her pelvis, was flown to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition. Bailey's boyfriend, Keeper Watkins, also was taken to UK for treatment of burns on his hands. Criss Chaney was treated at Clark Regional Medical Center in Winchester for burns to his fingers and smoke inhalation.
