Six members of a firefighting crew were burned Tuesday, one critically, in a training accident in a remote area of Los Angeles County north of Castaic.

Paramedics sent to Golden State Highway at Templin Highway at about 11:15 a.m. took all six victims for hospital treatment, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

One was in critical condition and five suffered minor injuries, the department reported.

The injured people were members of a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation firefighting “hand crew,” according to the LACFD.

Officer Josh Greengard of the California Highway Patrol told KTLA5 that the crew was engaged in a training exercise. Further details about the accident were not immediately available.
