BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
Students at Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington High School are doing everything they can to help a fellow classmate.
“We are trying to raise money for their family to send them for all the things they lost in the fire,” said student, Michael Oberschlake.
Ripley Union junior, Kilee Brookbank, was inside her Georgetown home Monday afternoon when it exploded. About 60 percent of her body was burned and she is currently in serious condition at Shriners Hospital. Fire crews say the home had some propane appliances and burn patterns indicated gas might have caused the fire.
