Santa Rosa Fire Burn Victims Face Lengthy Recovery

The fires ignited in Northern California on the windy night of October 8, 2017 killed 43 people and left several burn victims who face long painful recoveries. The wine country burn victims were taken to the Bothin Burn Center at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco and U.C. Davis Medical Center in Sacramento; both regional burn centers. The most severe burns are third-degree burns that go through all the layers of skin and sometimes into the subcutaneous fat and underlying muscle. The skin traps pressure inside that must be relieved by an incision called an escharotomy preventing limbs from bursting like an overcooked sausage.
