Herbert B. Campbell, a retired Baltimore firefighter, died Monday after a heart attack while working with the Middle River Volunteer Fire Company. He was 63 and an Ellicott City resident.
Services for Mr. Campbell were being held today at Arbutus United Methodist Church, Shelbourne Road and Maple Avenue.
Mr. Campbell had been riding on the company's aerial ladder truck, responding to a kitchen fire, when he took ill.
He joined the volunteer company nearly 10 years ago. He had been with the city Fire Department for 33 years.
After a brief assignment on a fireboat, he spent most of his career with Truck 12 at Liberty Heights Avenue and Garrison Boulevard. Decorated several times, he was the driver of the truck when he retired.
