(Scroll down for video) A young woman died after being burned while inside a coffee kiosk.

The bikini barista suffered severe burns when her coffee kiosk in Washington exploded.

26-year-old Courtney Campbell was treated at the Harborview Medical Center for four days, before she succumbed to her injuries.

Campbell bought the kiosk so that she can provide for her two young children. She operated the Saints and Sinners Coffee in Everett. She was known as the bikini barista because she was dressed in a bikini to work everyday.

Campbell sustained burns to 80 percent of her body after her kiosk was rocked by a blast around 4:40 p.m., turning the roadside cafe into a fireball.

A spokesperson for the fire department said that the cause of the fire remains under investigation, but officials believe that a propane tank contributed to the explosion.

Campbell left behind two daughters, who are 3 and 8 years old.
