Burn victim leaves hospital

BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) _ A woman who was severely burned in a gasoline-pumping accident is no longer hospitalized.

Lydia Cloud, 45, left Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa last Thursday, spokeswoman Sally Moore said. Cloud suffered burns over 10 percent of her body, Jerry Tunnell, Bristow's assistant fire chief, said.

Cloud was pumping gasoline into a pickup truck Feb. 17 at a Bristow convenience store when fumes from the fuel ignited, Tunnell said.

The cause of the blaze remains undetermined, Rich Cooper, a spokesman for the state Fire Marshal's Office, said. The fire totaled the truck and damaged a pump and a canopy.

Authorities believe it may have been caused static electricity, Cooper said. The fire marshal found no fault with the pump or Cloud, Tunnell said.
