The Everett,WA barista who was caught in an explosion at her coffee stand has sadly died from her injuries.

25-year-old Courtney Campbell was severely injured when the Sinners and Saints Coffee Co. stand on Everett Mall Way erupted into a ball of flames last week. The building & a nearby car were destroyed. Campbell was barely able to escape, and ran to a nearby gas station for help.

Campbell, a mother of two daughters, had recently bought the business and was even planning to open another stand before the tragic fire.

According to KING 5, firefighters believe a propane tank use for heat inside the stand contributed to the explosion and fire.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help her family.

A benefit concert for Campbell is also scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 16 at Tony Vs Garage in Everett.
