Teen Girl Dies Of Burn Injuries From California Wildfire

REDWOOD VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – A teenage girl has died in a Northern California hospital three weeks after she was severely burned in a fire that tore through Mendocino County. Her death raises the number of those killed in the state’s wildfires this month to 43. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports 17-year-old Kressa Shepherd died Sunday night at a Sacramento hospital. Kressa’s aunt, Mindi Ramos, says officials from Shriners Hospital for Children told her Kressa did not register pain during a change of the dressing on her burns. Doctors performed a CAT scan on her brain and according to Ramos determined she was brain-dead. She says doctors “turned off the ventilator and let her go.” Kressa’s brother, 14-year-old Kai Shepherd, was among the youngest who died in the wildfires. Their parents are hospitalized.
