(UPDATED WITH VIDEO)  One of five people injured in a fire at a mobile home in Sandusky County early Tuesday morning remains in critical condition at a Toledo hospital.

Jared Marker was a patient at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Firefighters from Lindsey and Sandusky Township were called Apollo Mobile Home Park at about 1:30 a.m. to fight a fully engulfed fire at a mobile home there, Sandusky County Sheriff's dispatchers said.

Four other members of Marker's family had been inside the structure, but they all made it out before firefighters arrived, dispatchers said. Marker suffered burns.

All five people were taken by ambulance to Physician's Choice Hospital in Fremont. From there Marker was taken to Toledo for treatment. The mobile home park is located on Ohio 523, just north of Fremont.

Sandusky County Red Cross director John Bailey said the agency had extended an offer for assistance to the family.
