Glendale, AZ (July 05, 2022) – A Glendale resident has been hospitalized with severe burns to his airways and face after a house fire devoured the front of his home on Monday, July 4th.
Fire crews from both the Peoria and Glendale Fire Departments responded to the structure fire in the area of West Union Hills Drive and 75th Avenue.
The front of the home was fully engulfed in flames, as was the car parked in the driveway. Crews were successful in containing the blaze to a single residence.
One of the homeowners, a man in his 60s, received extensive charring to his face and was transported to a local hospital with burns to his airways and face.
No injuries were reported to the other residents, or to emergency responders.
At the time of this posting, the homeowner is still in the hospital with no additional information on his condition.
Fire investigators do not think that the fire was caused by fireworks.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Burn Injuries in Arizona
The American Burn Association noted that each year, close to half a million people are admitted to emergency rooms across the country for treatment of burn injuries. Although burn injury victims boast a fairly high survival rate, they are usually subjected to excruciating pain, lifelong disabilities, disfiguring wounds, and psychological trauma.
The effects of a serious burn injury can be long-lasting and even life-threatening, with many causing secondary problems like amputations, chronic pain, and infections.
If you have endured a serious burn injury and feel that another person is responsible for your misfortune, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury case via Arizona’s civil court system. In many instances, all that is required to construct a strong lawsuit is a compelling claim verifying significant damages and the proficient legal representation of an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney.
