TULSA, OK -- A Cherokee County woman burned over 50 percent of her body has had her condition upgraded.

Anna Buzzard, 76, is now listed in fair condition at a Tulsa hospital.

Buzzard suffered burns in a fire that destroyed her rural Welling home early Sunday morning.

Two foster children, who were also in the home died. Authorities say 10-year old Shyann Garcia and 6-year old Rachel Newberry were found in a bedroom of the home.

The state Fire Marshal's Office says they believed the cause of the fire was a wood burning stove that was in use in the home.
