Chris Vannoy had an accident on August 20th, 2018. He noticed a shed next door smoking, and opened the door when the fire flashed on him. It burned his body from the torso down with 51% of his body burnt. Chris was air flighted to the LSU burn center, and will be in the ICU for 50+ days. Brittany, his fiancé, and Chris just purchased their first house and Chris recently started his career as a police officer while recently was certified as a paramedic and currently volunteers for the Arp Fire Department. Brittany and Chris will need help with their personal expenses while Chris is out of work for several months, as well as numerous amounts of hospital bills. Brittany is a nurse-paramedic at UT Health East Texas (formally known as ETMC). Any help would be greatly appreciated for these two, and all money will be donated to them. 
This is the shed that caught fire. 

Chris and Brittany

Chris had his third debridement surgery a few days ago and is slowly starting to recover. It will still be a very long road, but Chris has a very positive attitude and is doing everything he can to get better. Every day is a new day, and he is taking it one hour at a time. Prayers are still very much needed for Chris, and we are all overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who has supported Chris in this time.

An update from his dad:
Where should I start the surgeon just came out and gave us the update. The burns are not as bad as what they had thaught they were. most of burns are 2nd degree and flash burns. surgeon is very optimistic that he is going to heal very well considering is age and is very healthy and fit . Chris will need some more debriding of some more of the burns as well as some grafts. God is good.
