FDL Nursing Home Patient Suffers Severe Burns

A Fond du Lac nursing home patient was taken to a hospital after suffering serious burns last week. The resident at Crossroads Care Center on West Arndt Street was burned after her shirt caught fire. Fire officials say their investigation points to the careless use of smoking materials. The victim was later transferred to the UW burn unit in Madison for further treatment.
