A local expectant mother, 23-year old Ashley Janney, was rushed by EMS Life Flight to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta earlier today after suffering burns due to a kitchen grease fire.

Her husband Brent Janney told our reporters this afternoon that she suffered burns to one of her hands as well as other parts of her body but that doctors believe she will make a full recovery.

She is expected to remain hospitalized for a couple of more days for treatment as well as observation.

The unborn baby which is due in just three weeks is also expected to be fine. The accident took place while she was making dinner.

Mr. Janney stated that he and his family are very appreciate of all the prayers and concern from everyone in the community.

Brent’s father Lynn Janney is the well known Pastor of Ridgeway Baptist Church near Frolona.

The Citizen will update this story as more details on Ashley’s condition and recovery become available.
