      One of the girls was Caitlyn Darnell. She has 2nd degree burns on her face,arms, and back. She will be at the children’s hospital for 3-5 days. That is all that I know of.

    I have had rocks explode around a camp fire a few times. The get hot and boil the moisture in the rocks.

    Also, Caitlyn was the most severely burned one. Nobody got killed or anything. The rest had minor burns.

    We are certainly praying for all of the girls. It doesn’t matter what happened just that they are all ok. God was watching over them. I am thankful for their lives. God bless each one and their families.
