A six year old boy was severely burned Tuesday afternoon, at his home in Waco.
Firefighters responded to the accident on Summer Avenue, to find Khimarye Hickman with 15 percent of his lower body burned.
Investigators say the boy was only trying to stay warm, when he backed in the space heater, catching his pants on fire.
He was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center for immediate care.
His current condition is unknown.
