There was no classes at the Orange County College when firefighters were called to the school early the other morning after receiving reports of smoke in the third floor of a building. They discovered a fire burning in an air conditioning unit and had it under control minutes later.
In addition, they found a 21-year old student with serious injuries, severe second and third-degree burns over his entire body. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he remains in critical condition.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Dealing with the aftermath of a personal injury is difficult, but fire-related injuries can be particularly hard. Having an experienced severe burn injury lawyer will help you get all the compensation you need for a full recovery.
I wish this student a complete and speedy recovery.
