NORFOLK, VA -- A three year old boy sustained burn injuries late friday afternoon when he apparently fell into a fire pit at his family's home.

Emergency personnel responded to the 7100 block of Clarion Drive in the Chesapeake Gardens neighborhood after receiving a 9-1-1 call from the boy's parent.

A fire department spokesman said it was unknown what caused the boy to fall into the fire pit, although we're told he was being supervised when it happened.

The child was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The spokesperson had no information on the extent of his injuries.
