BATON ROUGE - Two men injured in a Geismar plant fire were able to go home to their families Saturday morning.

The two men Ben, 39 and Brandon, 57 were transported over to Baton Rouge General's Regional Burn Center in Mid City after a fire broke out at a Renewable Energy facility Thursday night.
Both patients are in good condition according to BRG's Dr. Tracee Short.

"Baton Rouge General's Regional Burn Center team has been inspired by the strength and courage of these two amazing gentlemen," Dr. Short commented. "We remain positive about their prognosis, and are elated to be sending them home to celebrate the Easter holiday with their families."

According to both patients, they are in good spirits to go home and spend Easter with their families and feel lucky to have received treatment at the burn unit.

"It's hard to be anything but happy right now. We consider ourselves very lucky to have been cared for here at Baton Rouge General - these caregivers really love what they do, and it shows," commented Brandon.

An investigation on the fire is still underway.
