Burns can be caused by any of the following:

The seriousness of a burn is described in degrees called a first-degree burn, second-degree burn, third-degree burn or fourth-degree burn.

A first-degree burn causes pain, redness, and swelling but is not a serious burn.

Second-degree burns are often serious, especially if more than 2-3 inches wide or on certain areas of the body. Second-degree burns or partial thickness burns affect both the outer and underlying layer of skin and cause blistering.

Third-degree burns are always serious and are often extremely serious. Third-degree burns also called full-thickness burns affects the deep layers of skin. Some third-degree burns require skin grafting. Third-degree burns affecting a large area of the body are life-threatening. Even third-degree burns affecting a small area of the body can be dangerous due to the possibility of infection.

Fourth-degree burns are third-degree burns (full thickness burns) which extend into the muscle and bone. Obviously, fourth-degree burns are extremely serious.

Due to the visible nature of burns, these injuries can be quite valuable. More serious burns may result in scarring, disfigurement, serious restrictions of movement and extensive treatment including skin grafting and other types of medical treatment.

Third degree burns

Burns sustained in a fire often involve many related injuries such as traumatic brain injury, airway burns and lung burns with serious future consequences.
