A McDonald's employee suffered burns on her palm when a customer handed her a smoking dollar bill, authorities said.

The McDonald's worker took the cash around 10:25 p.m. Sunday and realized only after it was in her hand that it was still "smoldering," Hackettstown police said.

"She is traumatized," a family member told Daily Voice.

The worker was treated at Hackettstown Medical Center, the family member said.

The incident remains under investigation, authorities said.
