Girl leaves burn ICU
A mother and her daughter who were burned in a Blanchard house explosion have reunited in a Dallas hospital. Tanya Sumner, 25, her daughter Bella Anne Sumner, 2, and Tanya Sumner’s father, Richard Hoff, 68, were burned when their house exploded March 7 because of a

propane-fueled stove that was not properly installed. Saturday, Bella Anne was taken out of the intensive care burn unit at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, where Tanya is now being treated. She previously was at Integris Baptist Medical Center, where her father remains in serious condition. Bella Anne is expected to be in the Dallas hospital another month, her mother said.
