Augusta-  The condition of two young Albany boys burned in a house fire has been downgraded from serious to critical. 

The first 48 hours for burn victims is crucial. Seven year old Tavane Woods pictured here and five year old Dartagan Russ received second and third degree burns to 30 percent of their bodies.

Russ set fire to a mattress in the boys bedroom Thursday morning blocking their escape. The boys mothers encouraged them to run through the flames to escape causing the burns. Both remain in the James M. Still Burn Center at Doctor's Hospital in Augusta.
