      Firefighter found dead at fire station

      Police and fire investigators are looking into what caused the death of a Toledo firefighter and paramedic while on duty Friday afternoon at Fire Station 14 in South Toledo.

      Officials say Michael Darrington was not feeling well and went upstairs to rest. Around 4:10 p.m. fire station 14 was dispatched to a fire run, however Mr. Darrington did not respond to the call-out. Another firefighter went to check on him and found him dead on the bathroom floor.

      Investigators say the Lucas County coroner will conduct an autopsy, but it appears Mr. Darrington died of natural causes.
