8.20.2017: Kitchen Fire with Burn Victim
At approximately 3:45 PM on August 19th the Beachwood and Pine Beach Fire Departments responded to the 500 block of Mizzen Avenue to the report of a kitchen fire with a burn victim. Fire Department EMTS treated the victim for second degree burns to the hand while other crew members tended to the kitchen and ventilated the home. It was learned that the victim was cooking with a pan of oil that caught fire. The victim and another resident tried to extinguish the fire with water from the sink and eventually threw the pan, on fire, out of the rear door of the home. The victim suffered serious burns to the hand and was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center by Beachwood First Aid. Although this situation was bad, it could have been a lot worse. As a reminder never throw water onto a grease or cooking oil fire, the outcome could be tragic. If able, put a lid on the pot or pan; use a towel to smother the fire; OR take our recommended advice and exit the home and call 9-1-1. Thank you-BFD.
