Lieutenant Riley redirected the hose line to extinguish the fire around them, enabling Riley, and Firefighters Hughes, Brooks, Strickland, and McLemore to move some of those who were severely injured to the outside, and were joined by Lieutenant Fowler and Operator Huggins in removing Wallace from the burning building. While in medical care, both Lieutenant Wallace and Lieutenant Pickard succumbed to injuries and died. For their injuries, Firefighters Mantey and Moran underwent extensive treatment over several months, including numerous surgeries. All of the firefighters laid their lives on the line for the sake of their duty to protect the City of Bryan, and each showed true heroism in their refusals to leave one of their own behind.
What an HONOR...
