A volunteer firefighter collapsed and died in a Westmoreland County fire station after responding to an alarm overnight.
While other firefighters performed CPR on William Bierbower, 72, officials say they were unable to revive him.
The county coroner says Bierbower was taken to Mercy Jeannette Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 12:50am.
An autopsy is scheduled to determine exactly how Bierbower died.
Bierbower was a member of the Fairmont/Hahntown Volunteer Fire Company in North Huntingdon Township.
