Firefighter Admitted to Burn Unit

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930, mebrady@co.pg.md.us

A Prince George’s County Firefighter has been admitted to the Burn Unit for treatment of an injury he sustained while battling a Fort Washington house fire last week.  On the morning of Tuesday, August 14, Fire Lieutenant Brian A. Delosier was the officer-in-charge of the first arriving ladder truck at the scene of a house fire in the 12100 block of Lihou Court.  Delosier, a nearly 20-year veteran member of the Fire/EMS Department, sustained 2nd degree burn injuries to his leg and foot during interior operations.  He was transported to the Burn Unit at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, was treated and released.

While recovering at home he felt as if the injuries were not healing correctly and during a follow-up doctor appointment he was admitted to the Burn Unit for further treatment.

Delosier underwent a skin graft surgery on Tuesday, August 21.  He continues to receive treatment while hospitalized.  Brian is in 3E room 34.  Visitors are welcome.
