USA — Rural Mountain Home man Paul Stewart was seriously injured Friday afternoon when he reportedly fell into a brush fire at his 35 Sequoyah Drive home.

The 911 call came in at 1:40 p.m. for a man who had fallen into a brush fire at the home. A woman on scene was trying to help Stewart when Mountain Home firefighters arrived.

Stewart was quickly loaded into a Baxter Regional Medical Center ambulance and taken to the hospital with what were described as serious burns to his upper torso and head.

An Air Evac helicopter was dispatched to BRMC, and Stewart was flown to the Mercy Hospital burn unit in Springfield, Mo.

Mountain Home firefighters responded with three vehicles and six people to the scene. Firefighters were at the one-half acre fire for approximately 25 minutes.

More details from the incident will be made available when the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office releases its report.
