Temple Hills Resident Sustained Critical Burn Injuries

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930

Prince George's County Fire Investigators are looking into an incident where an adult male sustained critical burn injuries.  Just after 2:30 pm, Friday, February 8, Firefighters and Paramedics were dispatched to a single family home in the 5900 block of Rayburn Drive in Temple Hills after a 911 caller stated a man had sustained burns while working on his car.

Firefighter/Medics arrived to find a man, in his 70's, had sustained 3rd degree burns over the majority of his body.  He was initially treated on the scene and transported by paramedics to a Burn Center.  He is in critical condition with injuries considered life threatening.

Another male family member, approximately 27 years of age, sustained less serious burn injuries to his hands while he was attempting to extinguish the fire.  He was also transported to the Burn Unit.

Officials from the Office of the Fire Marshal are investigating the incident and what may have sparked the fire.

As additional information becomes available this story will be updated.
