Home fires can be extremely dangerous, and they can result in severe and often fatal burn injuries. According to a recent article in U-T San Diego, an Oceanside woman died after her mobile home started on fire last week. In addition to this accidental death, the victim’s husband suffered serious burn injuries on his face and upper body.
The victim of the recent fire-related death was in her 60s, and emergency responders found her inside her bathtub. She and her husband lived in a mobile home at Lamplighter Mobile Home Park on North River Road in Oceanside. According to reports, firefighters arrived at the mobile home park at around 6:30 p.m. after receiving reports of “a double-wide home on fire” with “three people inside.”
