Two women suffered first and second degree burns after an apartment fire in the Lower Valley on Thursday.

It happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on Schutz Dr.

According to firefighters, there were four people inside the apartment.  Investigators said one of the people inside was on their way to help a family member who had run out of gas.  That person was carrying a gallon of gasoline when they walked into the kitchen to turn off the stove, and that is when the fire started. 

A 26-year-old woman suffered second-degree burns to the top of her feet, and a 62-year-old woman suffered first degree burns to her forearm and leg.

The other two people in the apartment were not injured.

The fire has been ruled accidental.
