Police say a woman sustained burns over 27 percent of her body when gasoline that was thrown on a fire pit exploded in a backyard in Keansburg.
Police say 19-year-old Donya Amin of Matawan is being treated for second- and third degree burns.
Police Chief James Pigott tells the Asbury Park Press Amin was with two friends when 22-year-old Aaron Newsom dumped gasoline on the fire pit Wednesday.
The chief says the gas can caught fire and exploded.
Amin tripped while trying to flee the flames.
