Video: Firefighter suffers heart attack while battling fire
The heart attack was brought on by a blocked artery
CAMP HILL, Pa. — Firefighters never fear bursting into burning homes, but after fighting a blaze this week, Carlisle firefighters feared the worst and it wasn't because of flames or smoke.
Bright orange flames roared from a home on Thornwood Lane Tuesday night. As far as fires go, this one was routine. Firefighter Christopher Darhower tackled the inferno from the inside until he had burning pain from his inside.
"I took a couple deep breaths thinking I would be just fine. It just got worse from there," Darhower said.
