Two Electricians Remain Critical After San Jose Fire

Two electricians badly burned in a weekend industrial accident remained in critical condition Wednesday while investigations continued into the circumstances surrounding the explosion of an electrical panel in north San Jose, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

Authorities have not identified the injured electricians, but San Jose Fire Capt. Rob Brown said one suffered burns over 65 percent of his body and the other over about 30 percent of his body and that both remained in critical condition at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center’s burn unit.

The men were working on an electrical panel when it flashed or exploded about 9 a.m., severely burning them. There were no other injuries or damage to the rest of the property.
