Grease fire burns two Paulding teens

Both were cooking in the kitchen of a Dallas-area home when a grease fire started, Paulding County fire spokeswoman Mary Ann Phipps said.

Phipps said the fire was contained to the kitchen, and the teens were burned when they tried to remove the burning pot from the stove.

"When the grease flared up, the teens tried to run with it," Phipps said.

The boys, ages 15 and 16, were helicoptered to an Atlanta area hospital where their conditions are unknown.
