The wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn is pretty good. No gross pictures either, which surprised me.

At least according to them, 4th degree is into non-skin tissues but not necessarily to the bone. I was surprised to learn that in their explanation, even 3rd degree burns only involve the skin. Albeit they go all the way to the bottom-most layer of skin, which layer is deeper into the body than most non-medical folks probably think.
