    An investigation has begun after a City of Miami firefighter was found dead inside a fire station early Wednesday morning.

    Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignaitus Carroll told reporters that the firefighter was found inside Station 14 located off SW 19th Street and Coral Way around 4:30 a.m.

    Carroll said that when just two of the three firefighters stationed inside responded to the truck after a call around that time, they went back inside and discovered the body of their male co-worker unconscious inside.

    Carroll said lifesaving efforts were performed, but were not successful.
