Officials have confirmed that Branson Summers, the second of three brothers injured in the Sevier County wildfires, has been released from the hospital.

Both he and his brother, Wesley, underwent surgery for severe burns last week.

Another brother, Jared, was released two weeks ago.

The boys' parents, Jim and Janet, did not survive the fires.

Wesley, the only brother still in the hospital, was listed in stable condition.

Family members said they hope to have him home by the end of the week.
