A 15-year-old Maple Grove student's face was badly burned during a classroom science experiment, reports NBC.

Dane Neuberger suffered second-degree burns to his face, neck, and right hand. He was rushed to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, reports the Star Tribune.

Three other Maple Grove Junior High students suffered minor burns. They were treated at the hospital and have been released, reports the Star Tribune.

Neuberger is expected to make a full recovery and have minimal scarring from the accident, reports the Star Tribune.

The accident was reported by NBC to have been the result of an experiment performed by teacher Matthew Achor, 61, involving matches and menthane gas.

The fire was small and was put out before the police and firefighters could arrive, reports NBC.

An investigation is underway by both the State Fire Marshall and the school to determine the cause of the fire, reports NBC.
