He was released from the UC Davis Burn Center on Sunday, and Siskiyou County Fire Warden Phil Anzo said his “spirits are high.”

"He's getting a lot of support from the unit and fire personnel, the burn foundation and the Wildland Firefighter Foundation," Anzo said. "There's a lot of family support and love for him."

A GoFundMe was set up to help Feller pay for medical bills and to make up for income he will lose as a result of the injuries, and it has raised more than $28,000.
