An Ogden couple suffered second- and third-degree burns after an explosion in a travel trailer last Thursday afternoon. According to news sources, the Weber Fire District and Ogden Fire Department both reported to a Super 8 hotel after reports of a fire, and the fire was quickly extinguished. Both the man and woman suffered burns to their legs and hands, and were transported to a local hospital, then moved to the University of Utah burn center. The Weber County Sheriff’s Office reported that the injuries were not life threatening.

Authorities believe the cause of the fire to be an accident, though the scene is still under investigation. The trailer was completely destroyed in the fire following the explosion, which they suspect was a propane leak.

It’s important to call us immediately after your accident so we can act quickly and gather the evidence we need to support your case before it’s lost or discarded.

Common burn injuries our team has seen include:

  • Thermal burns
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical burns
  • Natural gas burns
  • Propane burns
  • Industrial burns

These burn injuries can happen anywhere and in a variety of ways. One of the most common causes of burn injuries are gas explosions, which often injure gas and oil workers. These explosions are typically caused bye unsafe working conditions or manufacturing defects. Car accidents are another source of burn injuries, as it’s fairly common for gasoline to ignite and engulf cars in flames after a collision.


Burn victims must seek medical attention immediately, as burn injuries are often classified as catastrophic, or more serious injuries that can become permanent and require lifelong care. Common treatments that are required for burns include skin grafts or flap procedures, surgery, amputation, antibiotics and antihistamines, and intravenous fluid. Medical bills can add up quickly as a result, and most people can’t afford the high costs.
