DOCTORS have allowed family members to speak to Ipswich house fire victim Brianna Creenaune for the first time since she sustained horrific burns on Sunday.
The 16-year-old sustained burns to her back and arms after a section of burning ceiling collapsed on her during a fire at her Wulkuraka house.
She has been placed in an induced coma as she undergoes surgery and skin grafts, however doctors raised Brianna to a level of consciousness on Wednesday after she responded well from one of her operations.
This allowed family some precious time to speak with Brianna.
Brianna's mother Robyn Thomas - who is also still in hospital with burns - reported yesterday that doctors were impressed with the gutsy teenager's progress following surgery carried out on Wednesday.
