Some types of burns can threaten your life

Burns can be caused by fires or flames, electricity, hot liquids or steam, heated objects or chemicals. A number of factors determine whether you'll be left with minor or severe burns. If it's serious enough that it causes your skin to crack, then you may develop an infection that if left untreated, can turn into sepsis, a life-threatening condition.

A firefighter faces his sixth surgery at Augusta Burn Center

One of the most severely burned LaGrange firefighters who was injured while fighting an early morning house fire on Labor Day underwent his sixth surgery at Augusta Burn Center on Sept. 26. At least 35 percent of his body was burned in the fast-spreading blaze.

What's the difference between the different degrees of burns?

If you've ever read a news story about injuries people suffered in a fire, then you've likely heard their burns classified as first, second or third degree ones. What you may not have known though is what distinguishes one from the next.

Where do burn injuries most often occur and who is most affected?

As the American Burn Association set out to commemorate National Burn Awareness Week in February, they released a report acknowledging that burn injuries are one of the top causes of unintendend bodily harm or death in this country. They also reported that the odds of an American dying from burns or fire-related injuries is close to 1 in 1,500. Firefighters aren't the only ones at risk for such injuries either.
