Critically burned hospital patient's lighter caused fire

Investigators say an oxygen tank may have played a part in a fire that critically burned a patient at the UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport Regional Medical Center.  They say Tuesday's fire was caused when the patient's clothes ignited as she light a lighter.  Investigators say the woman was alone in her room when the fire started and two nurses and a third employee rushed in to help her.  The woman was last reported to be in critical condition in the burn unit at the Lehigh Valley Regional Medical Center in Allentown.
