Wood On The 'Road To Recovery'


By Brittany Cooper

Burley, Idaho (KMVT-TV) The wife of a local representative who was seriously injured in a home explosion, is on the road to recovery.

We spoke with Rep. Stephen Hartgen Sunday evening who said that Amy Wood is getting better.

But the most serious burns remain on her arms. She's expected to be at the burn center in Salt Lake City for at least another week.

Last Sunday, Amy and her husband, Rep. Fred Wood were eating dinner, when a gun vault in their Burley home exploded.

The cause remains under investigation.

The Burley Fire Department is waiting to hear back from state investigators.
