PHOTOS: A firefighter seriously injured while responding to a deadly house fire last month returned home from the hospital Friday afternoon. The Milwaukee Fire Department announced Ryan McMenamin was released Friday afternoon from Ascension St. Mary's Hospital. McMenamin suffered serious burns when he got trapped fighting an April 14 fire. As fire spread to three houses on S. 8th St. near W. Lincoln Ave., McMenamin was attempting to save 72-year-old Monica Lemke, who was trapped in her second-floor bedroom. While McMenamin was on the second floor, Chief Aaron Lipski told reporters that day flames burned up through the floor behind him and into the attic. Firefighters were able to rescue McMenamin by pulling him through a window and cradling him down a ladder.
