Man Dies After Porta-Potty Fire at Prince George’s County Park

A man who suffered life-threatening injuries after a porta-potty fire at a Prince George’s County park has died, reports NBC Washington.

A Maryland State Police trooper saw the fire at 7 a.m. Tuesday in College Park, at the Sunnyside Neighborhood Playground.

Fire officials say the trooper used fire extinguishers inside his cruiser to put out enough of the fire to pull the victim from the porta-potty.
Fire crews arrived at the scene and extinguished the remaining flames.

The man, who was in his early 20s, was airlifted to a burn unit in critical condition. He died Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Officials said it’s possible that the fire started as a suicide attempt, but the investigation is ongoing.
