Bryan TX Firefighter Released from Hospital

A Bryan (TX) firefighter who was critically burned last month while battling a lodge hall fire has been released from the hospital, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Ricky Mantey Jr. was released this week from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, said hospital spokeswoman Kristen Hensley.

Two Bryan firefighters died in the fire and another was critically injured. Eric Wallace, 36, was pronounced dead at the scene and Greg Pickard, 54, later died at UTMB-Galveston.

Firefighter Mitchel Moran also was injured in the fire, and was listed in serious condition Thursday at the hospital.

Mantey and Moran suffered burns while trying to rescue their fellow firefighters from the burning building.
