HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a Hagerstown man is recovering from second- and third-degree burns he sustained in an accidental house fire.

A spokeswoman at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore said Monday that 30-year-old Brent Fearnow was in good condition following the fire Sunday evening.

Hagerstown Fire Chief Kyd Dieterich says Fearnow was burned on his hands and legs by a fire that started in the garage of his home on Outer Drive.

Dieterich says the city fire marshal is still investigating the cause of the blaze.

He says the fire damaged the garage and its contents, including a fiberglass boat, and part of the single-family home.

    Queenie, you obviously do not know Brent and are not family or a friend. For what Brent’s friends and family are going through right now, I can’t believe that someone had the audacity to post such a comment. As angry as I am with your comment, I hope that you never experience what we are, as Brent’s friends and family.

    queenie, your heartless!! I’m family. Brent Fearnow is in a Hospital bed suffering with 2nd and 3rd degree burns while his wife watches her husband recover and wonders what would be if she had lost her husband. He is a very hard working person who loves his wife, dog (who he saved from fire with said burns) and his power boat. Almost everything these people worked for was taken in minutes. We almost lost a loved one! I hope you never experience the emotions envolved of almost lossing your loved one in a fire. For you to leave such a heartless comment shows me that your a very insecure person and thinks it funny, and that someone will read that and laugh till they are sick….. Well I’m not laughing and it still made me sick!
