WASHINGTON - A volunteer firefighter in Prince George's County has been released from the hospital, two months after suffering severe burns in a house fire.

The 21-year-old O'Toole is expected to travel with his parents to Bethpage, N.Y., where he'll continue his outpatient treatment and physical therapy.
