Augusta man burned at Martinez business dies



An Augusta man burned last month while working at a Martinez glass business died Monday.

Jesse James Crosby, 40, was severely burned on his head, arms and torso on Oct. 26 as he worked at O’Brien’s Glass at 3842 Washington Road.

Owner Dave O’Brien said Crosby was working on laminated glass using denatured alcohol and a flame. The can of alcohol exploded. Crosby ran through the shop until a colleague used a fire extinguisher.

Crosby was taken to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center, where he died Monday from complications from the burn and respiratory injuries he received in the explosion, Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins said Thursday.
