Rural house fire victim remains in hospital

A rural Thorntown woman remains hospitalized with injuries from a March 11 house fire.

Judi Thomas-Shearer suffered first- and second-degree burns to her arms and chest, Thorntown Fire Chief Mike Martin said Monday. She has been at Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, Indianapolis, since the fire at her home, 8511 N. CR 200 W, about 8 1/2 miles north of Lebanon.

It was unknown how much smoke and heat Thomas-Shearer might have inhaled, Martin said.

He said the cause of the fire has not been determined. Investigators need to interview Thomas-Shearer, but she has not been able to communicate since the fire.

Until that interview, the fire’s cause will remain undetermined, Martin said.
