The community is coming together to help a Barnwell man who was severely burned on more than half of his body Friday night.
Todd Grubbs was among a group of people who were gathered around a burn barrel at 2051 Hartzog Road on Feb. 5. Around 11 p.m. someone poured some kind of gasoline - possibly diesel fuel - into the fire. Fuel splashed on Grubbs and he caught on fire, said Barnwell County Sheriff Ed Carroll.
“It appears to be an accident,” said Carroll, who classified the case as active until they can interview Grubbs.
