The Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a subject which received burn injuries located at 113 Austin Circle, Berlin, Maryland in Worcester County. At approximately 2:30 pm on October 1, 2014 Berlin EMS was alerted for a reported subject with burn injuries at the above mentioned address. Upon their arrival, MSP aviation was requested to transport the subject to the Bayview Burn Center in Baltimore. The Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office was requested to conduct an investigation because of burn injuries caused from open flame. It was determined the subject with the burn injuries was utilizing a cigarette while on home oxygen. Please remember to never smoke and never allow anyone to smoke where medical oxygen is used. Medical oxygen can cause materials to ignite more easily and make fires burn at a faster rate than normal. It can make an existing fire burn faster and hotter ( www.nfpa.org/education ).
