CANE BEDS - Four people, including an 8-month-old baby and a teenager, were flown to regional hospitals after a leaky propane valve ignited a fire at a home in the area of 2600 South and 1800 East in Cane Beds.
Mohave County Sheriff's deputies and detectives and Colorado City firefighters responded to the home at about 7:10 a.m. Saturday to find the victims in the front yard.
The victims are Lyman Ray Mammon, 21; Samantha Lebaron, 19; their baby, Emory Hammon-Lebaron; and Desiree Lebaron, a 15-year-old friend of the family from Hildale, Utah.
Samantha Lebaron was taken to a Las Vegas hospital. The father and Desiree Lebaron were flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City. The baby was taken to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City.
The Miner was unable to determine their conditions as of press time and the sheriff's office had not been updated by late Monday afternoon.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter said investigators determined the valve, which was behind the stove, was leaking. They were unable to determine how it ignited.
Helicopter crews from First Mercy Air and Life Flight transported the victims.
