CINCINNATI (AP) — A 1-year-old who was badly burned in a house fire the day before Christmas remains in critical condition at a Cincinnati hospital.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1btl2cJ ) reports that the fire on Tuesday morning in West Price Hill burned about 80 percent of the toddler's body.

The boy was being treated Friday at Shriners Hospital for Children.

Firefighters arriving at the two-family home found the baby's mother holding her unresponsive child and heavy fire on the first floor of the building.

Everyone was able to get out safely, although the baby's father burned his foot while rescuing the baby from his crib, and had to be treated at a hospital.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A Kalamazoo woman spent Christmas Day rescuing tropical parrots from a mid-Michigan home and breeding facility that lost power during last weekend's ice storm.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/JhdJOP ) Thursday that bird rescuer Theresa Barylak has transported about 20 parrots to her operation known as Avian Haven. The Lansing home and breeding facility owned by Michelle and Carey Feazel had lost power, and two birds died of exposure to the cold.

Barylak says she hopes the birds will survive and seeks volunteers and cleaning supplies as she prepares appropriate space for them within her sanctuary.

TROY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman has claimed a prize of $1 million following the near-record Mega Millions drawing earlier this month.

The Ohio Lottery says Patricia Edwards of Troy matched all five white balls in the Dec. 17 drawing. Had she matched the Megaball as well, the 54-year-old would have won part of the $648 million jackpot.

Lottery officials say she made her claim on Dec. 23.Her $1-million prize was one of 11 sold for the drawing, and the only one in Ohio.

Edwards bought her ticket at a Speedway in Troy, which gets a $1,000 sales bonus.

The winning numbers for the drawing were eight, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Mega Ball of seven.

Ohio Amish argue against guardian in chemo case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A court was wrong to appoint a guardian to make medical decisions for an Amish girl whose parents stopped her chemotherapy against doctors' wishes, and the guardian should be allowed to resign, the family's attorney said in court filings this week.

The lawyer for Sarah Hershberger's family argued for a reversal of the appointment in a filing in their state court appeal.

Ohio's guardianship statutes appear to let courts substitute their judgment for that of suitable parents while ignoring the parents' "moral and constitutional interests," Maurice Thompson wrote in his filing with the Ninth District Court of Appeals in Akron. The court should take a narrower view that limits such second-guessing and is consistent with constitutional safeguards of their rights, he wrote.

To do that, the court must hold "that the decisions of suitable parents may not be attacked by anyone anytime in an Ohio Probate Court, and that these careful and gut-wrenching life and death decisions cannot be second-guessed and overruled where the parents are suitable, and simply seek to try a less invasive treatment first," wrote Thompson, who leads the libertarian 1851 Center for Constitutional Law in Ohio.

NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) — Authorities are investigating an abduction and death at a state park in eastern Ohio.

It started Thursday when Cambridge police reported that a female pizza delivery person hadn't returned to work and may have been abducted by a man, possibly her boyfriend.

Deputies used the man's cellphone to track him, and State Highway Patrol troopers stopped him in the pizza delivery vehicle on Interstate 70 in Guernsey County around 7:15 p.m.

Later, the woman's body was found at Dillon State Park in Muskingum County, about 65 miles east of Columbus.

The suspect was taken into custody. No names have been released, and no other information was immediately available.
