    Story by nbc10.com

    -- Officials have released the name of the firefighter who died Tuesday morning after he collapsed at the scene of a blaze.

    James Allen, 43, was a seven-year veteran of the department. Officials said his father was a firefighter, also.

    Officials believed Allen died of an apparent heart attack, but are waiting for autopsy results to be absolutely certain.

    Allen collapsed at a fire Tuesday morning in Northeast Philadelphia and later died at a local hospital.

    He was from the Ladder 16 group based at Belgrade Street and Huntington Street.

    Allen was on the roof of a building around 7:45 a.m. when he collapsed at 2972 Aramingo Ave., while fighting the fire, witnesses said.

    The firefighter was given CPR and taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    The fire was under control at 7:53 a.m. and no other injuries were reported.

    PHILADELPHIA (KYW) A 40-year-old Philadelphia firefighter collapsed and died Tuesday morning while fighting a house fire in the Port Richmond section of the city.

    Investigative Reporter Walt Hunter was told James Allen climbed a ladder to the roof of a home on the 2900 block of Aramingo Avenue in order to break upper floor windows and release the smoke. He collapsed soon after and was rushed to an area hospital.

    Hospital officials could not revive him announcing he had suffered a heart attack.

    Hunter reports Allen followed his father's footsteps by becoming a firefighter. He is survived by his wife and children.

    Officials say the one-room fire was sparked by a seven-year-old with a history of playing with matches.
