Injured firefighter update

August 10, 2009

A Glendale firefighter, who was injured last Monday in a house fire, is still recovering from third-degree burns at the Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks, officials said.

He had surgeries Thursday and today.

He got skin graphs grafts on Thursday and went inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to trigger cell growth, Fire Chief Harold Scoggins said.

“He is in great spirits,” Scoggins said.
