CHEVERLY, Md. - Prince George's County authorities say a contractor has suffered second-degree burns while working at a Cheverly warehouse.

Mark Brady, a spokesman for the county fire and emergency management agency, tells The Washington Post ( that an electrical arc caused burns to the contractor's face, neck arms and chest on Tuesday. The man's injuries were not life-threatening.

Several months ago, a worker at the warehouse on Cabin Branch Drive accidentally ran a forklift into a storage rack which caused the roof to collapse. One worker was trapped and his body was discovered days later.
