FARMINGTON — A Jay man who was critically injured in a Sept. 16 propane explosion was listed in fair condition Monday at a Boston hospital.

Larry Lord, 61, had been listed in serious condition last week at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Lord received burns over more than half of his body in the explosion at the LEAP Inc. central office building in Farmington where he was maintenance supervisor.

The blast claimed the life of Farmington Fire Rescue Capt. Michael Bell and injured six firefighters. Three have returned to work and three are still recovering.

Lord’s condition has fluctuated from fair to serious during the past two months.

He is credited with saving the lives of several LEAP co-workers after he got them out of the building moments before the explosion at Farmington Falls Road.
