scanner-150x150The report of a toddler with burns to chest and neck in the Hoopa area had emergency personnel scrambling to respond around 2 p.m. today. An ambulance transported the one-and-a-half-year-old girl to St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka. As of 3:30 p.m., the family hasn’t received a report on how she is doing.
