Doniphan volunteer fireman Jimmy Schafer is improving after suffering burns fighting a field fire a few days ago. Emergency personnel transported Schafer to St. Elizabeth's burn center in Lincoln Friday afternoon.
Officials are not releasing the specifics of his injuries but say he is doing better.
His family's been speaking with the Doniphan fire department to let them know Jimmy's condition.
Doctors upgraded his condition to 80 percent survivability on Saturday.
No one knows how long the recovery time will take, but he is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a couple of months.
