AN, Texas (AP) - Authorities say funeral services for one of two Central Texas firefighters killed in a weekend blaze will be held Friday.
A service is scheduled for Bryan fire Lt. Gregory Pickard before his burial in adjacent College Station.
Authorities had previously announced Thursday services for Bryan fire Lt. Eric Wallace.
Pickard and Wallace died Saturday of injuries suffered fighting a blaze late Friday in an unoccupied Knights of Columbus Hall. Two other firefighters suffered burns.
About 1,000 mourners attended a candlelight vigil for the men Sunday night at a high school football stadium in Bryan, about 90 miles northwest of Houston.
City officials plan a formal public memorial service Wednesday at Central Baptist Church in College Station.
Investigators say it could take several months to determine what caused the fire.
