Ireland Lane suffered second- and third-degree burns to 18 percent of her body in the fire. Doctors at Legacy Emanuel Burn Center were treating her for the burns.
“She was wiping the bedside table clean from an art project, using hand sanitizer. Her shirt had olive oil on it,” lead investigator Dan Jones explained. “It was like a candle wick that was easily ignited by the static that was in the bedding and clothing in her room.”
