I am told that Sherry Hatlin (55 yrs) and her grandson ???? Albracht (age 8) have perished. Tom Hatlen (27) has burns over 30% of his body and Cody Hatlen (15) has burns over 90% of his body. Both are in Memorial Burn Unit in Springfield, IL. Nora O'Neill (age 87)(next door neighbor) sent to St. Johns, Springfield. Possible broken leg, several cuts, lacerations, possible concussion.

It is sad that this happened. It's even worse that not all the family is able to be there. I know my mother is feeling helpless for not being able to be there. Sherry was her aunt.

I am a former resident of Carlinville and just learned of the accident from my mother, Sandy Cramer, who still resides in Carlinville. This is so tragic and the whole family is in my prayers....

My heart goes out to Tommy. No one should have to go through such a tragedy. I hope he finds the strength to keep himself going. However, I am proud to say that I am a life long Carlinville resident. It was amazing to me how everyone pulled together in the community to help a family in need. Hats off to those of you who risked your lives to save others. It is unfortunate that there wasn't a better outcome. My thoughts are with the family members of the Hatlen/Albracht family.
