Stewartville Woman Suffers Burn Injuries in Cigarette Lighting Mishap
Olmsted County Sheriff’s Captain James Schueller said the medical call came in shortly after noon from a residence in the 700 block of South Main St. in Stewartville. Deputies learned the woman, who was hooked up to an oxygen tank, attempted to light a cigarette when the flame from the lighter apparently ignited the oxygen.
The woman suffered burns to her hands and face. Schueller said the woman is 55 years old.
