A severe burn suffered in a fire can be a particularly devastating type of injury. They can be extremely painful and can have a lasting impact on the victim. Burns often require extensive treatment, rehabilitation, and could leave the victim with restricted movement as well as scarring and disfigurement in severe cases.
Burn injuries caused by fires are usually thermal burns, and burn injuries are typically classified by degrees. The three most common degrees include:
Three additional degrees of burn injuries are less common and often fatal. These other degrees include fourth-degree burns that extend into the fat, fifth-degree burns that extend into the muscle or sixth-degree burns that extend into the bone.
