One of the two Bryan firefighters severely burned nearly two months ago has been released from the University of Texas Medical Branch Burn Unit in Galveston.

Mitch Moran finally left the Blocker Burn Unit, and he even got a ride from the Galveston Fire Department to his condo near the hospital.

He and fellow Bryan Firefighter Ricky Mantey, Jr. are recovering from burns at a fire in February at The Knights of Columbus Hall in Bryan.

Two Bryan firefighters, Eric Wallace and Greg Pickard, were killed from injuries suffered in the fire.

Both firefighters recovering say they are extremely appreciative of the support from the community and can't wait to come back home.
