Orcutt teen remains in critical condition after being severely burned in house fire

A 16-year old girl critically hurt in Tuesday's house fire in Orcutt remains in critical condition on Wednesday night, in the intensive care unit at a Los Angeles burn center.

According to the family, Jazzmin Landey suffered multiple third degree burns along her abdomen and thigh area. Santa Barbara County fire officials initially reported that Landey had suffered burns to 90% of her body, however Landey's uncle/godfather said it was much less than that.

On Tuesday at around 3:45pm, Santa Barbara County Fire crews responded to the two-story house on the 4500 block of Edenbury Drive.

Fire officials said Landey was on the front lawn when crews arrived, and they said she had jumped from a second story window.

Friends say Landey was sleeping when the fire broke out, and she woke up to a room full of flames.

A man and three young boys, ages six, eight, and 10, were also in the house, but they escaped uninjured.

Landey's godfather said, "We're all keeping our thoughts and prayers together for Jazzmin, we're down here and we've been getting nothing but tons of support that we're hearing from back home and it's just kinda helping the family out a lot."

The family is asking for the community's help. An account fund has been set up under Jazzmin Landey's name at all Central Coast Wells Fargo Banks. The account number is #2928567979. Donations are also being accepted at The Foxenwood Clubhouse in Orcutt, the Remedial Transportation Services in Santa Maria, or the Sunset Honda in San Luis Obispo.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department said it is still working on determining the cause of the fire.
