Florida Firefighter Killed

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A 30-year-old Volusia County
firefighter died today when a pine tree fell on him during a
training exercise.
Authorities say John Curry was using power and chain saws when
the tree fell and struck him in the head.
It was not clear if Curry or another firefighter cut down the
tree at the Volusia County Fire Training Center. Firefighters
attempted to save Curry but he died at the scene.
Curry joined Volusia County Fire Services in January and was
stationed in DeLeon Springs.
The sheriff's office was investigating, although no foul play is
suspected. Volusia County Fire Services also is reviewing its
training procedures.
