Croydon, UT (September 20, 2021) – One person was hospitalized after sustaining injuries while escaping a basement fire on Saturday, September 18th in Croydon.
The Morgan County Fire Marshal said that state, county, and local fire crews were dispatched to the scene in the 4200 block of North Lost Creek Road at about 11:45 p.m.
Upon their arrival, they found a fire in the basement and one person who had sustained lacerations and other trauma to at least one of his arms as he escaped from the burning basement.
He was transported to a local hospital and is expected to recover.
Crews were able to extinguish the fire but investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Several thousand victims sustain injuries caused by house fires every year. Many people who endure fire-related injuries will have to undergo numerous medical treatments. Additionally, until they have fully recovered, they will be unable to work. Both of these hurdles can negatively impact their lives and their family’s lives as well.
Along with burn injuries, those who survive house fires are also susceptible to respiratory problems caused by smoke inhalation, along with contusions, lacerations, and broken bones sustained while trying to escape the smoke and flames.
Fires break out for multiple reasons. Salt Lake City and its neighboring communities are known for their heavy fire season that usually begins mid-summer. Unfortunately, fires are not just a force of nature. Far too often, they are caused by negligent or malicious people.
When victims are injured in accidents involving fire, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable burn injury attorney in Croydon as soon as possible. When victims are harmed in fires, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
