Chemical fires cause serious injuries. In addition to the burns they suffer, victims of chemical fires also experience exposure to toxic substances. The toxins are often in the smoke inhaled by a victim during the fire. Individuals who survive chemical fires may have been thrown from the fire by an explosion, which may have saved their lives but left them with other serious injuries such as head and brain injuries, broken limbs, and internal organ damage.
