When units arrived they found a 34-year-old male with complaints of second and third-degree burns. He was an outside electrical contractor installing a security camera for APeel Science and was severely electrocuted while drilling into the electrical vault. The victim was treated at the scene and transported via ground ambulance to Cottage Hospital, reports SBC Fire Captain Dave Zaniboni.

This was reported as a person on fire at 71 South Patterson Electrical fire but might be chemical involved heard someone say they were 3rd degree burns...The Structure was also on fire but it was a small structure fire from what I have gathered...There was a full County Fire response for a Structure Fire....I do not know the condition of the victim nor the circumstances of the fire at this time...
