The student still ended up with minor burns and was transported to Southern Maine Medical Center where she was treated and released. Even though she was cleared to return to school, officials there decided to allow her to take the rest of the day off to recover. While no other students were in danger of getting injured, the rest of the student body were told to stay put until the situation was resolved, which it was after 20 minutes.
