Mesa, AZ (April 24, 2022) – It took dozens of firefighters to contain a fire at an apartment complex in Mesa that put two people in the hospital on Tuesday, April 19th.
Fire crews were dispatched to the area of McKellips Road and Red Mountain Freeway for reports of a residential fire at about 4:00 p.m.
Officials confirmed that two people were injured and taken to the hospital in stable condition.
One set of injuries was from broken glass, sustained during evacuation. The other was caused by smoke inhalation.
Three additional victims received on-site treatment.
Approximately 45 residents were displaced and two animals were rescued.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Fire-Related Injuries in Arizona
The American Burn Association reported that every year, nearly half a million people are admitted to hospitals nationwide for treatment of burn injuries. While burn injury victims boast a relatively high survival rate, they are often subjected to agonizing pain, permanent handicaps, disfiguring scars, and emotional trauma.
The impacts of a severe burn injury can be lifelong and even life-threatening, with many producing secondary issues such as infections, chronic pain, and amputations.
If you have experienced this type of injury and feel that someone else was the cause, you might be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim through Arizona’s civil court system. In many cases, all that is needed to mount a compelling lawsuit is a compelling case and skillful legal representation from a reputable Phoenix personal injury lawyer.
