A thick scab has developed on Tom's back as he heals from being severely burned in a recent fire at the Washington State Fairgrounds. Tom, a Yorkshire piglet, was only a few weeks old at the time of the fire.  He is now around 8 weeks old and weighs an estimeted 80 pounds. Once healed Tom will be returned to his owner, Kyler Young, who is using him as a breeding boar at his families' farm, Proverty Hill Farm.  The farm has over 600 pigs on it which they sell to 4-H kids.  Tom originally came from a farm in Anacortes.  The Young's paid hundreds of dollars for him. Becker says the fire fighters worked really hard to keep the animals alive.
