Is there any new info of the types of burns she received? I prey that they are mostly second degree or "full thickness" burns and not 3rd or "Deep full thickness. Each leg is 18% of an adult body and it looks like the legs were the most affected. My burn was from long exposure to heat which made for a 3rd degree burn. I currently have a good sized second degree on my arm form a show on saturday. In comparison the second degree burn is painfull but it will heal fast without much scarring. They can manage pain in the hospital I just hope she recovers fast without lasting effects. I really hope she comes back to fire with a great story to share.

Best wishes

Alexander Tsaregorodtsev, Gelios Fire Theatre Director sais. Of course, we try to minimize it. But this is what work with fire is! When someone is performin with snakes a slight touch on the costume is enough for the combustible to get into the fabric. If the costume is not made of leather, the clothes become a burning wick.

This kind of ignorance coming from someone calling himself a fire theatre director makes me both upset and angry.

Any professional fire troupe MUST take adequate safety precautions with their costume and set, the same as any other theatre company. This means treating costumes with a product such as flamebar (who make loads of different products for different materials) or firecheck. Once material is treated with the appropriate product it will not catch fire period. You can hold a blow-torch to it for a prolonged period and it will not catch (we tested their claims... and they are indeed true).

My thoughts go out to the poor girl, her family and friends... However by the sounds and looks of things, had proper safety precautions been followed this kind of incident would not - indeed cannot - happen frown

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
