Burn injuries can come in a variety of different ways but each is serious. They can be caused by fire, hot liquids, chemical exposure, boiler explosions, fireworks, gasoline, and contact with hot objects such as stoves, ovens, irons, hair curlers, and room heaters, among other things.
Burns can lead to serious injury such as disfigurement or brain damage. In the most tragic of cases, deaths occur. Hundreds of people are killed each year in fires, including many young children.
