LIBBY, Mont. -

NBC Montana has received an update on a Libby teenager who was severely burned in a gas can explosion in April. Seventeen-year-old Libby resident Zack Browning is still recovering at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

His stepfather, Jimmy Ray Fincher, tells us Zack went through his fifth surgery Friday morning. Since the accident, his burns have dropped from 75 percent of his body to just 36. Fincher said Zack hasn't had any major infections and doctors feel he is on track for his recovery.

An account for Zack has been set up at the Lincoln County Credit Union:

PO Box 1586, Libby, MT, 59923.

Please make checks payable to James R. Fincher. They will be deposited directly in Zack's account.
