Police Investigate After Baby Burned

A four-month-old baby boy was badly burned over the weekend while he was in his parents' care. Early Saturday morning, police arrived at Tidewater Way in the Landings.

The parents, Alison and Bret Andrews, told police they set the baby in his car seat on the kitchen island near the stove. Then they told police they went outside to the pool to go swimming with a friend.

Police say a few minutes later, the parents heard the baby crying and when they came inside, the baby was on fire.

The four-month-old, Noah Andrews, is in critical condition at the Augusta Burn Center.

So far no charges have been filed against the parents. The case is still under investigation.
