HANCOCK COUNTY - A 13-month-old baby remains hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns, and his parents were also injured after fire erupted inside a FEMA trailer Thursday night, the Hancock County Sheriffs Department said.
The 10:30 p.m. fire at Oakwell trailer park burned 30 percent of Landon Rayburn's body. The baby had to be airlifted to a hospital in Baton Rouge. Hancock County chief investigator Kenny Hurt said he was told by the Department of Human Services that the child was in stable condition.
Mother Dana William, 21, was being treated for burns to her abdomen and both legs at a hospital also in Baton Rouge, Hurt said. The status of the father, Beau Rayburn, 26, is not known; he had been discharged from Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
The home is off Highway 90, just west of Waveland.
Authorities hope an ongoing investigation between the sheriff's department and the state and local fire marshals will determine how the fire started.
"It was an accident. I don't think there was anybody intended to do anything to these people," Hurt said. "But it shouldn't have happened."
