An adult male sustained critical burn injuries at a Fort Washington auto parts store this afternoon. Just before 3:00 pm firefighters and medics from the Allentown Road Fire/EMS Station 832 were alerted to respond to an auto parts store in the 9100 block of Allentown Road. Upon arrival they found a man with critical burn injuries about the majority of his body and a fire that had already been extinguished that involved a vehicle gas tank.
Medics initiated treatment and summoned the Maryland State Police Trooper 2 to fly the critically injured man to a Burn Unit.
The Fire/EMS Department’s Office of the Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire. At this point the cause is under investigation and the man is in critical condition.
