A MAN is in a critical but stable condition after being hurt in a fire at his home in Holbeach Clough.
The 20-year-old has been transferred to a special burns unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham following the incident on Roman Bank on Sunday.
It is understood he had been welding for work on a go-kart in a shed at the time and the fire caused a minor explosion.
Emergency services were called to the scene at about 9.15pm.
The man was initially taken to Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital before being transferred.
A police officer remained guard at the scene while investigations took place.
A spokesman for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said the fire caused severe damage to the shed and its contents and heat damage to the windows of a nearby detached house and a fence.
The fire was extinguished by firefighters using two hose reel jets and breathing apparatus.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
