A baby was badly burned late Tuesday in a fire that reached a bassinet in a Raymore apartment.

The 4-month old infant, who was pulled from the burning bassinet by woman who was baby sitting, was flown to Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati.

A Raymore fire official on Wednesday described the child’s condition as critical.

The woman also was injured in the fire, which was reported at 10:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Sky Vue Drive in Raymore. She was treated and released.

The fire began in the apartment’s living room. The cause is under investigation.
