(FREETOWN) - A Freetown man is in critical condition in the burn unit at Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis after he received burns when his home blew up on Monday.

Police says David Painter was burned when the furnace in his one-story, wood-framed home at 4807 W. Columbus Pike exploded.

The 54-year-old was treated by personnel with Jackson County Emergency Medical Services before being flown from a field across from his home to the burn unit in Indianapolis.

Police and Painter credit 39-year-old neighbor, Joe Francis, for saving his life.
