WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — A memorial service is being held for a Baltimore County firefighter who died after he went into cardiac arrest during a training exercise.

The memorial service for 58-year-old Robert Fogle III is being held Thursday at the Pleasant Valley Fire Department in Westminster.

Fogle died Friday afternoon while at a training exercise in the Sparrows Point area. Officials say Fogle was going through a maze while wearing a breathing apparatus, a drill every firefighter does once a year. His heart stopped beating and he was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Fogle is survived by his wife and two adult children.
