A 3-month-old girl was in critical condition with burns Saturday and dozens were left homeless after the infant's father allegedly disconnected a gas line in their apartment in a suicide attempt, causing a blast heard half a mile away. The 5:15 a.m. explosion forced all 34 residents of the two-story building to evacuate indefinitely. Five people were treated for cuts and bruises, while the baby's mother, Anna Owczsarska, 21, was in good condition with minor burns at Valley Medical Center.

A transient sitting on a Capitol Park bench poured lighter fluid over himself and ignited it in an apparent suicide attempt, State Police said. The man, a park regular, was taken to University Medical Center with severe burns, Capt. Glen Glaser said. Glaser said police officers on regular patrol had talked with the man half an hour before he ignited himself, but the man did not seem upset.

An ex-bus driver charged in a May 1 shooting rampage that killed one person and wounded three others apparently tried to commit suicide in his cell, his attorney said.

"He drank some caustic cleaning solution that he somehow got hold of," Richard Brown, Bellazain's defense attorney, said Thursday.
