In West Chester, Pennsylvania, a massive fire engulfed a senior living community, leaving several residents with personal injuries. Nearly 20 residents sustained injuries after a multi-alarm fire befell the senior residence on Thursday night around 10:46 pm. Seniors and staff evacuated the buildings, and have been displaced from their homes. Nine victims of the massive fire went to the Chester County Hospital while seven others received treatment at the Paoli Memorial Hospital. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and it is not certain if there were any fatalities.
When a fire ignites at a home or business, it can quickly spread, and cause burn injuries for occupants as well as smoke inhalation sickness, which could become fatal. Survivors of massive fires may experience lifelong physical and emotional distress. In some cases, a fire may start due to an electrical problem or another accident.
