Mesa, AZ (June 09, 2022) – A 30-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man sustained critical injuries when a fire broke out at a Mesa golf resort apartment unit on Wednesday, June 8th.
At about 1:00 p.m., fire crews were dispatched to the Arizona Golf Resort in the area of Broadway Road and Power Road. Upon their arrival, emergency crews located the two injured parties outside and the apartment unit on fire.
Both patients were taken by paramedics to the Arizona Burn Center in Phoenix with severe and potentially life-threatening injuries.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames and keep the fire contained to just one unit. Initial reports led officers to believe there had been an explosion but that was not the case. It’s unclear what started the fire.
With neither of the injured people being able to speak, investigators are somewhat restricted in conducting their inquiries.
Mesa Fire and Medical Department officials said that fire crews also rescued a dog from a nearby apartment before he was hurt.
No firefighters were injured.
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.
