PLEASANT HILL (BCN)

A woman who suffered critical burns in Pleasant Hill on Wednesday evening has died from her injuries, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District official said today.

Fire and medical crews responded around 5 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a burn injury off of Cleaveland Road near Gregory Lane and found a victim suffering from critical burns, according to Fire Marshal Robert Marshall.

The woman was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where she later succumbed to her injuries, Marshall said. Her name is not yet being released by the Sacramento County coroner's office.

The burns the woman suffered were not related to a structure fire, according to the fire marshal.

Marshall said he could not comment on the nature of the case but said both fire and police investigators are looking into whether the woman's injuries were self-inflicted or accidental.

No foul play is suspected.
