On 11-9-10 at 2:47 PM officers from the Oxnard Police Department were sent to assist the Oxnard Fire Department with a burn victim. During an investigation it was learned the victim was transient and had fallen asleep while smoking a cigarette next to a building hidden from public view. The blanket covering the victim ignited causing 2nd degree burns to his face and right hand.

An unidentified citizen observed the smoke and quickly distinguished the fire and notified a nearby business to call 911. The victim was transported to Ventura County Medical Center and later air lifted to a trauma burn center in the Los Angles area. The condition of the victim is unknown.
