Dana Truitt, a female volunteer at St. Paul's By the Sea, is still recovering at a Baltimore hospital according to town officials. A hospital official from Johns Hopkins Hospital tells WMDT Truitt is in critical condition.

Two people were killed in the last Tuesday's fire, including the church's pastor, Reverend David Dingwall, and John Raymond Sterner, the 56 year-old Ocean City man who started the fire. Truitt was severely injured when Sterner, engulfed in flames, ran into the rectory building.
