MIAMI — A firefighter was found dead at a fire station Wednesday, according to officials.

Miami Fire Rescue officials said the unnamed firefighter was found by two of his colleagues, who realized he was missing as they went to their assigned fire truck to respond to a call, Local 10 reported. 

Capt. Ignatius Carroll said the two firefighters tried to revive their unconscious colleague, but were unsuccessful.

"We see tragedy everyday as first responders, and just remember that we're also human, as well," Carroll said. "We deal with these situations on a personal level, and even though this is at a work environment, you tend to become one, become a family with the people that you work with."
