Brother of Wolf Eyes member injured in fire

Peter Young, the brother of Wolf Eyes band member Nate Young, was severely injured Feb. 24 during an ill-fated attempt to rescue his dog from a fire.

Young safely evacuated his apartment but re-entered to locate his dog, Little John. Then he became unconscious from smoke inhalation and suffered second- and third-degree burns on between 30 to 44 percent of his body, police told Nate Young.

Little John died in the fire.

Young, who currently has no medical insurance, must remain in the hospital for two to three months. Wolf Eyes have created a Paypal account for donations to help cover the cost of medical bills and apartment repair.
