    “Resulted in at least 21 people being treated for second and third degree burns to their feet..”

    Hey, at least they didn’t suffer 4th degree burns…

    WIKIPEDIA: • Second-degree burns affect both the outer and underlying skin causing pain, redness, swelling, and blistering.

    • Third-degree burns extend into deeper tissues. They cause white or blackened, charred skin

    • Fourth -degree burns extend into your soul & strip away your “Personal Power”
