Hancock County firefighter to be buried Friday

A Hancock County volunteer firefighter who died on the job this past weekend will be buried Friday in the Georgia Veterans Cemetery, a fire spokesman said.

Gary Street, 60, was a firefighter with the East Lake Sinclair Fire Department.

He collapsed and died Saturday while assisting on a medical call, said Brandon Barth of Baldwin County Fire Rescue, who released the information on behalf of the neighboring volunteer department.

Barth said Street is believed to have had a heart attack.

The funeral is set for 11 a.m. Friday at Williams Funeral Home followed by a fire department procession to Georgia Veterans Cemetery, where Street will be buried.

Representatives from area fire departments are scheduled to attend the service, Barth said.
