Mount Airy man injured
NEW MARKET -- A Mount Airy man was one of two employees of a trucking company burned when a light bulb broke and ignited gasoline fumes from a truck they were repairing.
Daniel Newcomer, 26, of Mount Airy and William Trent, 25, of Washington County were taken by helicopter to Washington Hospital Center and reported in stable condition late Monday. Both work for Hahn Transportation Inc. in this Frederick County community.
A hospital spokesman said Newcomer received first- and second-degree burns on 6.5 percent of his body and Trent suffered second-degree burns on 3 percent of his body.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Faron Taylor said the fire began around 11:30 a.m. when a drop light on a cord fell. The bulb broke, igniting flammable vapor in the area.
Firefighters from Mount Airy assisted six Frederick County companies at the fire, which caused an estimated $3,000 damage to the truck.
