A north Wales teenager has died after an explosion involving a garden chimenea in Lancashire.
Lisa Jones, 19, from Llanfairfechan, Conwy county, was taken to Manchester's Wythenshawe Hospital after the incident at a house in Chorley on 21 June.
She died on Wednesday morning.
Lancashire Police said there was an explosion after someone tried to light the outdoor fireplace. A 19-year-old man from the Chorley area has been questioned and released.
More inquiries are being carried out and a file has been passed to the coroner.
"It appears an accelerant was poured on to the chimenea and the lady was standing close by when it went up," a Lancashire Police spokesman told the Daily Post newspaper.
"We are satisfied this was a very unfortunate accident."
