Spring, TX (April 27, 2021) – On Monday afternoon, April 26, a person sustained serious injuries in an afternoon fire that consumed two buildings in Spring, according to the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office.
Witnesses said that a flash fire ignited when liquid was being transferred as part of a commercial manufacturing operation at the 2100 block of Old Ox Road. The burn victim’s injuries were serious but not life-threatening. A pair of buildings were destroyed, though the fire was contained before spreading to nearby structures.
The cause of this fire is still under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Building Fires in Houston
Every year, several thousand victims suffer from serious injuries caused by serious fires. A majority of these victims will be forced to endure lengthy hospitalizations and will be physically unable to work until their injuries are fully healed. Both of these circumstances will most likely cause serious financial difficulties for the victims and their families, particularly if the fire occurred as a result of a work accident. Injuries that are commonly caused by fires include various degrees of epidermal burns, sometimes leading to permanent nerve damage or disfigurement, and respiratory problems stemming from smoke inhalation.
If you or a family member sustained an injury during a fire in Texas, then a personal injury attorney will be able to identify the most efficient techniques for helping you receive financial compensation for losses like funeral and burial expenses, medical costs, loss of income, and many other damages.
