About 1,000 mourners have attended a candlelight vigil for two Central Texas firefighters who died during a weekend blaze.

Bryan Fire Department Lt. Eric Wallace and Lt. Gregory Pickard were remembered Sunday night during the prayer service at a high school football stadium. Bryan city officials plan a formal public memorial service Wednesday at Central Baptist Church in College Station.

Wallace and Pickard died Saturday of injuries suffered fighting a blaze that broke out late Friday in an unoccupied Knights of Columbus Hall. Two other firefighters suffered burns.

Ricky Mantey Jr. and Mitchel Moran were in serious but stable condition Monday at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

Investigators say it could take several months to determine what caused the fire.
