A 9-year-old boy had second- and third-degree burns on one of his legs after he stepped into a fire pit at a beach in San Clemente on Friday evening.

At around 6:25 p.m., Friday, August 4, firefighters got the call and responded to T-Street Beach, said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. David Harper.

It is unclear what the boy was doing before stepping into the pit, but he did suffer burns on his right foot and leg, Harper said.

The boy was airlifted to Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana with what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries, he added.
