On Monday, the cause of the explosion remained under investigation. But a 13-year-old boy and his 16-year-old sister remained in the intensive care unit at Grady Memorial Hospital, Dirkse said. The teens were flown to the hospital after being pulled from the fire, which caused minor injuries to their parents and younger brother.
The family’s oldest child, the 16-year-old, sustained the most serious injuries, Dirkse said. She underwent extensive surgery Monday and is expected to remain sedated for at least a week.
