Two electrical contractors suffered serious injuries after being burned at a hotel in southwest Charlotte last week. The workers were burned while working on an electrical panel at the Ramada Hotel.
According to a report from WBTV.com, a flash fire sparked up during the incident. Fire crews say there was not a fire when they arrived, but that firefighters reported seeing a small amount of smoke.
"They were working on a panel, it’s a main large electrical panel that’s 480 volts and whatever happened something in there went wrong and it flashed and like I said electricity and a flash fire," Battalion Chief Paula McDaniel told WBTV.
Duke Energy cut power to the hotel, they said, as a precaution.
