RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) — A performer playing a shepherd at Richland church's living Nativity suffered burns to his hands and face when his robe caught fire.
Medics took the 20-year-old to Kadlec Regional Medical Center with first- and second-degree burns.
KVEW reports he was standing next to a campfire at the Cathedral of Joy Thursday night when the fire spread to his robe. He rolled down a hill and others helped put out the flames.
After a short delay the show went on.
