Fourth degree burns??

This is most emphatically NOT "need answer fast".

Was watching a medical program on TV and it showed someone that was critically burned in a car explosion. Mention was made of fourth degree burns. I think I have also heard that term in the past.

I thought burns only came in first (redness), second (blistering), and third (deep tissue) burns? Assuming fourth degree burns are meaningful, what is the difference between third and fourth degree burns?
