On Sunday afternoon, a 5-year-old child walked on a smoldering fire pit during a family camping trip at the state park in Oceano. The child suffered second-degree burns and was transported in an ambulance to the hospital.

The fire pit contained hot coals. It is unclear if the pit was covered with sand. 

Earlier this month, a 3-year-old girl suffered second and third-degree burns after walking on a covered fire pit during a family picnic at Montana de Oro State Park. The fire pit had been covered in sand, but not extinguished with water.
