One of three firefighter who remained in a hospital after being injured in a fire at the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences has been released, the Tulsa Fire Department reported Saturday.
The firefighter was released from Hillcrest Medical Center late Friday, Fire Capt. Stan May said.
Two other firefighters remain hospitalized but are listed in good condition, May said, adding that their status will be re-evaluated Monday.
A total of eight firefighters suffered various burn-related injuries caused by explosions during Wednesday’s fire at the former Barnard Elementary School building, 2324 E. 17th St.
Six of those firefighters were released from the hospital the same day, but one of them returned to the hospital that night after complications arose, May said.
