As of press time, he reportedly will continue his recovery at home and has requested privacy while he continues to recover from the second- and third-degree burns he sustained as a result of the incident.

It remains unclear on what treatment Travis got during his hospital stay. His ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, has said in an interview with US Weekly that his rocker husband has received several skin grafts and gone through multiple surgeries. "He just had his seventh surgery where they checked on his grafts," the actress-model told the magazine. "That's when they shave the skin off and then staple cadaver and pig skin right on so the skin underneath can heal to see if they had to graft more, but they don't. He might be out in the next two weeks. The doctors foresee a full recovery."
