Child in critical condition after house fire

A hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, confirms 10 year old Tyler Sabino - who was severely burned in a house fire in Colorado Springs - is being treated there.  His father Tom Sabino is in a burn unit in Denver.

Both were injured when the home they were staying in caught fire early Monday morning.  Family members say each suffered burns on more than half of their bodies.  Tom Sabino was badly burned after he reportedly ran back into the burning house to save his son.

Four other children were also injured in the fire, but they have all been treated and released from local hospitals.

Colorado Springs fire investigators say the fire started accidentally in the garage of the home.
