A man, aged in his 30s, was flown to The Alfred hospital on Friday with burns to his face, neck and shoulders after a welding accident at Minhamite.
It is believed the man, who was admitted to the hospital’s burns unit, was working on a truck, when the fuel tank exploded.
Six ambulance and fire units attended the Caramut-Minhamite Road property about 6.10pm on Friday and he was transported to Melbourne in the HEMS 4 air ambulance an hour later.
The Alfred hospital spokesperson Corey Nassau told The Standard on Saturday afternoon the man was in a stable condition.
Ambulance Victoria spokesman John Mullen said the burns to the man’s upper body were minor to severe and he was in a serious but stable condition following the incident.
A WorkSafe investigator attended the scene on Friday.
