Four people were injured, including one who suffered serious burns, in an electrical fire Saturday afternoon at Pharmaceutics International Inc. in Hunt Valley, Baltimore County fire authorities said.

Fire officials responded to a call just before 1 p.m. for a building fire in the 10800 block of Gilroy Road near Beaver Dam Road, authorities said.

Baltimore County Fire Department Lt. James Artis said four electricians were working inside a power room when an electrical short occurred.

One suffered third-degree burns to the upper body. Two victims were burned on their hands and arms, and the fourth had burns on the arms and neck, according to Artis. All four were taken to the burn unit at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

The fire was under investigation.
