A volunteer firefighter, who suffered an apparent heart attack March 11th while fighting a brush fire in Nash County, died this weekend.
Greg Cooke was a 20 year veteran of the Salem Volunteer Fire Department.
Scott Rogers, Nash County assistant fire marshal, tells WITN News that Cooke died at Wake Med at 5:00 p.m. Saturday.
Rogers says it's the first death of a Nash County volunteer firefighter in recent history.
The 60-year-old Cooke was also a 12 year veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
A graveside service will be held Thursday at 2:00 p.m. at Rocky Mount Memorial Park. Rogers says while area firefighters are welcome, the family has asked that only one fire truck, that from the Salem V.F.D., participate in the service.
