Age 61

Richard passed away one week after collapsing and becoming entangled in furniture in a house fire.

Lt. Richard Montoya, 61, died at 9:55 a.m. Sunday at Denver Health Medical Center where he had been in a drug-induced coma.

The 30-year veteran was about 15 shifts shy of retiring. When he was found under debris on the second-floor, his face piece had been knocked off which allowed him to breathe the hot gases. Reports indicated he went into a bedroom instead of down a flight of stairs that would have led him to safety.

He was carried from the building in cardiac arrest. Although his pulse was restored en route to the hospital by Denver paramedics, he never regained consciousness. Throughout his hospitalization, fellow firefighters have been at his side.
