Firefighter released from hospital after head injury

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The firefighter who sustained a head injury Friday afternoon while battling the Las Conchas Fire has been released from the hospital, a fire information officer confirmed Saturday.

A second firefighter, who injured his leg around the same time Friday, is expected to stay in the hospital over the weekend, fire information officer Rick Barton said.

Barton said the head injury was sustained when the man fell or fainted, and the leg injury occurred when a loose rock struck the firefighter. Barton could not provide more information about the firefighters due to privacy concerns.
