A second Bryan firefighter has died following a Friday night blaze that had killed another colleague and injured two others. Bryan Fire Department Lt. Gregory Pickard, 54, died between 4:30pm and 5:30pm at UTMB in Galveston due to burn wounds and smoke inhalation. The fire had already claimed the life of 36-year-old Lt. Eric Wallace earlier Saturday and left two other firefighters fighting for theirs. ... Bryan Fire Chief Randy McGregor says the cause of the fire is still under investigation but its flames were so intense, part of the building's roof collapsed while firefighters were still inside.
