12-year-old burned in fire; marijuana grow operation discovered

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman is in jail, and her 12-year-old nephew critically burned in what firefighters call a bizarre case.

When firefighters arrived at the home just off Bardstown Road near Bashford Manor, they found a 12-year-old boy outside with burns on over half of his upper body.

Firefighters quickly extinguished a fire in the living room, but it was what they found afterwards that surprised them -- a locked door to a nearby bedroom.

49-year-old Gerri Greer is facing drug charges.  The 12-year-old boy was flown to Cincinnati Children's Hospital which is equipped to handle serious burn cases.

Investigators aren't sure what started the fire.
