Hunter critically injured in Tyler County accident

TYLER COUNTY - By Steve W Stewart/KJAS and Rayburn Broadcasting Company

Texas Parks & Wildlife is investigating after a 19-year-old Louisiana man was accidentally shot and critically injured by his 21-year-old hunting partner in Tyler County over the weekend. According to game wardens, it occurred at about sunset on Saturday at a hunting club in the Foster Hill area, just off of Highway 190.

Wardens say the victim suffered what was described as major gun shot wound from a high power rifle. He was flown by a medical helicopter from the scene to a Beaumont hospital, and is listed in extremely critical condition.

Officials have questioned the man who shot him, and they say it is believed to have been simply an accident.

Both men are from Louisiana, their names have not yet been released.

Child playing with matches causes house fire

JASPER COUNTY - By Steve W Stewart/KJAS and Rayburn Broadcasting Company

A young boy playing with a lighter is said to be the cause of a Sunday afternoon house fire in the Dixie Community. The incident occurred at about 1:30 at the Carolyn Houston residence on Farm to Market Road 2799.

According to neighbor Rodney Armstrong, he was outside in his front yard and noticed smoke coming out of the front of Houston's house. Armstrong said he, and local business owner Chad Adams, ran to the house and they both opened up the doors to see if anyone was inside.

Armstrong said the front room was already on fire, and the child suddenly ran through the flames and went out of the front door. Meanwhile, Adams was at the back door and was able to get the child's mother out there.

Another neighbor said she talked to the youngster, and he admitted to her that he was playing with the lighter and accidentally caused the blaze. Fortunately, Houston and her son were uninjured./ The volunteers of both the Jasper and Angelina River Fire Departments arrived a short time later, but by that time the one story wood frame structure was already fully engulfed.

Firefighters were able to bring the flames under control about 10 minutes later.

New information on DuPont's deadly chemical leak that killed Groves woman
LA PORTE - The four workers, including a Groves woman, who were killed by a poisonous gas leak in La Porte were trapped inside the plant for an hour before 9-11 was called and no one told dispatchers what substances were inside.

The Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that the DuPont plant typically housed as much as 250 tons of highly flammable methyl mercaptan, but it also contained at least some methyl isocyanate.

That's the same chemical that leaked at a Bhopal, India pesticide plant in 1984, killing more than 2,200 people in the world's worst industrial accident.
