Jasper man hurt on Thanksgiving when clothes catch fire

JASPER - by Mike Lout/KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting Company


An 86 year old Jasper man is undergoing treatment for the injuries he received on Thanksgiving morning when the clothes he was wearing caught fire at his home.


Police and emergency crews, along with firemen, were called to the home of Clinton Collins, in the 1900 block of North Bowie Street, shortly before 8:00, when it was reported that the incident had occurred.


Police at the scene said Clinton was apparently warming himself in front of a heater when his clothing caught fire.


His son, Joe Michael Collins is being credited with quickly tearing the burning clothes off his father and putting out the fire which had spread to a couch.


Clinton was taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital where he was treated before being transferred by helicopter to a hospital in Galveston.


Jasper City Fire Marshal Mike Collier said it appeared that Collins received 2nd degree burns to approximately 30 percent of his body.
