Man trapped in vacant spa receives serious burns

SAN DIEGO, CA – A man trapped in an empty spa in the University Heights area received severe burns on Monday, according to a report by Fox 5 San Diego.

Authorities received a report of the fire at Anna Spa, located at El Cajon Boulevard, just after 6 a.m.

According to a fire department spokesperson, the unidentified victim had been seen trying to escape the spa through a barred front window.

The victim was rescued by firefighters who used a saw to cut through the bars on the windows and then taken to the hospital for severe burn injuries. There are no details on his status at present.

Details are not available at this time on why the victim was inside the vacant business. Officials speculated he may have been a neighbor who was trying to extinguish the fire.

The fire was put out within fifteen minutes and caused around $7000 total damage.

Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
