SEATTLE (AP) - A hospital spokeswoman says one of two boys injured in an explosion outside a home in Enumclaw, Washington, had his second surgery Wednesday.

Susan Gregg of Harborview Medical Center in Seattle says 10-year-old Beau Ward is in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit.

A fire official said the two boys apparently were using gasoline at a campfire last Friday.

Gregg says Ward was burned over 65 percent of his body.

The second boy, who is 9 years old, suffered burns to less than 10 percent of his body. He’s out of the hospital.

Enumclaw is about 35 miles southeast of Seattle.
