    Heart Attack Claims CA Firefighter

    Firefighter Matthew Smith, 33, a five year veteran of the Redwood City Fire Department in Redwood City, California, died of a heart attack while on duty Monday, Feb. 5.

    Smith suffered an apparent heart attack at the end of the physical fitness period.

    Smith was born and lived in San Jose. He is survived by his wife Carla, son Peter, 8, and daughter Alexis, 8 months.

    Redwood City FD Battalion Chief Geoffrey Balton said Smith loved to spend time with his son hunting and fishing. He also was a fine carpenter and had helped many other firefighters in their homes. "He was one of our real popular guys. He was a real firefighter," Balton said.
