Memorial service held for Houston firefighter

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - A veteran Houston firefighter who died while battling a house blaze has been remembered at a memorial service.

The Houston Chronicle ( ) reports that speakers at the Saturday service in the Houston suburb of The Woodlands said 46-year-old Daniel Groover as an incredible cook who had a dry-wit sense of humor.

Groover died Wednesday when he collapsed after responding to a fire in a vacant house in Kingwood. His fellow firefighters found him inside the structure on the second floor.

A procession of hundreds of emergency responders made their way to the service for the 21-year-veteran of the Houston Fire Department.

Houston fire investigators, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health and a team from the State Fire Marshal's Office are investigating his death.
