ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two small children critically injured in a flash fire in Albany Friday night continue to fight for their lives at the Burn Center in Augusta.

Both 3-year-old Jeremiah Fenn Junior and 1-year-old Ja'el Fenn are critical.

Friday night, an intense flash fire in the 1600 block of Ken Gardens Road badly burned the two and their mother Jessica Fenn was also burned as she tried to save them.

Fire investigators say vapors from a gas can that was left in the utility room of the home are likely to blame. 

"It's not an uncommon occurrence, I should say," said Albany Asst. Fire Chief Ron Rowe. " think if you went around town, you would find many people with the same situation. I think it is a reminder though, maybe we should double check on safety measures at home."

The children's father, Jeremiah Fenn is a police officer for the Marine Corps Logistics Base. He formerly worked at the Dougherty County Police Department.
