2 suffer critical burn injuries in Sun Valley house fire

- Fire damaged a home in Sun Valley Wednesday, where two men suffered critical burn injuries.

The men were discovered across the street from the house at 8366 Glencrest Drive in critical condition with second- and third-degree burns, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

It was unclear how the two men arrived there, Humphrey said. One was a 38-year-old man with burns to 46 percent of his body, and the other victim was a 20-year-old man who had burns to 56 percent of his body.

Firefighters said there was evidence of explosive damage that compromised the 66-year-old home prior to their arrival. Electric wires were also down from a power pole to the one-story structure, Humphrey said.

Firefighters dispatched to the location at 3:51 p.m. had the fire out within 34 minutes of their arrival, Humphrey said. The fire was confined to the home's garage and attic.
