COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Cimarron Hills Fire Department announced the sudden passing of one of their own Sunday.

Officials say 31-year-old Jermaine Frye was found in cardiac arrest at his home early Saturday afternoon. Lifesaving efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Frye’s cause of death has yet to be determined. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Officials say Frye had been hospitalized following a recent work-related injury he sustained during regular physical training. He was released from the hospital Friday night.

Frye was hired as a full-time paramedic firefighter with the Cimarron Hills Fire Department in February 2015.

He leaves behind a fiancée and unborn child.

There is a gofundme page set up in his honor if you wish to donate to his family.
