Washington state woman shot by stove

SEKIU, Wash. (AP) - A woman in Washington state says her cast-iron
stove shot her in the leg. Cory Davis tells the Peninsula Daily News that
she had just stoked the heating stove in her home Sunday when she
heard a loud bang and was struck in her left calf.

She says she initially thought "that was one fast hot coal flying at me."

In fact, she was hit by part of a 22-gauge shotgun shell that she had
accidentally put into the stove with newspapers she used to light it. A box
of shells had spilled nearby a few weeks before.
Davis says she removed the metal fragment herself Sunday and sought
treatment for the shallow wound the next day.
