The American Burn Association reports that every year in the United States, around 1.1 million burn injuries require medical treatment. The definition of a burn is damage to tissue due to agents like chemicals or heat. Burns can result from a variety of causes:
- Car accidents;
- Explosions caused by gas and other flammable liquid fuel;
- Exposure to scalding or very hot water;
- Electrical accidents;
- Industrial accidents;
- Making fires;
- Spilling gasoline;
- Use of matches and lighters; and
- Defective candles.
