CLERMONT, Ga. (AP) - A daycare worker has been arrested and the facility has been ordered to close after police say a child was burned there.

Eddye Pittmon of Talmo was charged with child cruelty and was being held at the Hall County Jail. It wasn't clear if she had an attorney.

A spokesman for the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning says the agency has issued an emergency closure order, which is used when children are in imminent danger. He says the program was violating appropriate supervision rules.

The 16-month-old was injured on June 13.

Pittmon is expected to go before a judge Monday morning.
