SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a 65-year-old Salisbury woman had to be rushed to the hospital for serious burns she suffered in an early Friday cooking accident.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the incident occurred at around 4:30 a.m. at a home on Marshall Street in Salisbury.

According to investigators, the victim sustained first- and second-degree burns to her upper
body while heating up grease on the kitchen stove. She was initially transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment. She was later transported to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center in Baltimore for additional treatment of what authorities are calling non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators blamed unattended cooking for the accident.
