Serious Burns from Montgomery County Fire Hospitalizes ToddlerApril 3, 2017
A toddler suffered from serious burns that stemmed from a fire in Boyds, Montgomery County, Maryland. On Sunday around 2:30 pm, responders to the fire observed smoke coming from the living quarters located above a storage building that contained hay bales. The toddler was sent to the hospital for treatment for serious burns along with several other occupants. Officials determined the fire originated in the storage building and suspect ignited fireworks as the cause of the fire.
When a fire ignites in a house, any individual in the home is at-risk for sustaining burn injuries or, in extreme cases, potential fatalities. Along with personal injuries, occupants of the house could develop smoke inhalation sickness, which causes additional medical complications. Even if fire survivors are free from physical injuries, they may endure debilitating mental trauma.
