    A veteran California firefighter died in the line of duty Saturday on the scene of a structure fire.

    Eduardo Teran, 43, a 17-year veteran with the Riverside Fire Department, collapsed and went into cardiac arrest while performing firefighting activities. The department is waiting on autopsy results.

    Firefighters saw Teran fall near a parked engine as they were doing cleanup work. Riverside Fire Department paramedics performed advanced life support before transporting Teran to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than two hours later.

    Ed you are missed by everyone at the RFD. I think about you everyday when I am climbing on the rig or training a rookie. The new training facility will be named in your honor. God bless you Ed.
