Dane, 23, woke up surrounded by flames, his apartment had caught fire and his only way out was to jump off the second floor balcony. While Bakersfield Fire Department and Kern County Fire Department battled the 2 alarm fire at Stockdale Garden Villas Apartments, Dane was transported by Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. to the Grossman Burn Center at Memorial Hospital.
Suffering burns to 75% of his body, Dane’s journey to recovery would include 10 weeks in Burn ICU with multiple surgeries and procedures. With Dane’s spirit and determination, and the love and support from his family, friends, #chilisfamily and the Bakersfield, California, community, his recovery is a miracle! #TeamDane #Bakersfield Firefighters Burn Foundation #Kern County Firefighters Burn Survivor Trust
