A veteran California firefighter died in the line of duty Saturday on the scene of a structure fire.

Eduardo Teran, 43, a 17-year veteran with the Riverside Fire Department, collapsed and went into cardiac arrest while performing firefighting activities. The department is waiting on autopsy results.

Firefighters saw Teran fall near a parked engine as they were doing cleanup work. Riverside Fire Department paramedics performed advanced life support before transporting Teran to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than two hours later.

“This event deeply saddens all the members of the firefighting community and city,” Chief Tedd Laycock said in a department release.

Teran is survived by his wife, Nanci, and daughter, Lauren, 13.
