A woman injured in a car fire last week is still in the hospital, recovering.

As we reported , the fire started in a vehicle that was parked at the McCalister’s parking lot on Ambassador Caffery Parkway.

The driver of the vehicle, Abbie Duncan, was burned in the fire. Her sister tells us it started with a can of dry shampoo that she had just purchased. It was in the back seat of her vehicle, and exploded. She was able to get out of the vehicle, but suffered burns on her face, arms and legs. She’s been in the hospital since the fire, and has had two surgeries and several skin grafts. Her sister says the doctors believe Abbie will fully recover.

Medical bills are mounting, and there will be a recovery period. Abbie also lost her vehicle and everything she had in the car, including her purse, wallet and phone.

A co-worker and friend has set up a GoFundMe to help Abbie in her recovery. If you’d like to help, click here .
