A Texas town is mourning the loss of a firefighter who was found dead hours after responding to a call.

The Alvin Volunteer Fire Department announced on Facebook that Capt. Charles Krampota died in the line of duty on Friday after fighting a fire earlier in the day.

Krampota was part of a crew that responded to a fully-involved blaze at a mobile home off Susie Lane in Alvin, Texas. The department said no residents were at the home during the fire, and it was extinguished shortly after.

Hours after being cleared from the scene, Krampota was found dead inside his home.

Krampota was reportedly a member of the Alvin VFD for over 20 years.

“Charlie was an outstanding firefighter, and friend to so many,” Chief Rex Klesel said in a news release. “One of the most dependable and hardworking individuals I have even met. He will be sorely missed.”

He also spent over 30 years working for the Alvin Independent School District. The school district’s website showed his most recent position as a MEP Manager in the Maintenance Department.
