    mom and two kids in critical after trailer home explosion

    A mother, her one-year-old son and four-year-old daughter were inside a mobile home in Barry County when it blew up.

    It happened just before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Marino's Trailer Park on Barber Road just off M-43 north of Hastings.

    The family had moved into the mobile home just three days ago.

    Officials say the trailer park manager had a stove installed in the home, but it wasn't hooked up properly and was leaking gas. The manager told 24 Hour News 8 he wanted her to stay out until it was fixed. But apparently as she was leaving, she lit a cigarette and the trailer exploded.

    Neighbors dragged the family from the flames, but say the children were so badly burned they weren't sure if they were boys or girls.

    The 21-year-old mother has second and third degree burns on 55 percent of her body, her son has second and third degree burns on 90 percent of his body, and her daughter has second and third degree burns on 40 percent of her body.

    what a frickin moron
