A Hillsborough County firefighter died while on duty Sunday morning, though fire rescue officials wouldn't release any information other than to say he was not out on a call when he died.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Nacole Revette identified the firefighter as Iran D. Rivers. She said he died on duty while at a fire station. She said details would be released on Monday.

Funeral preparations were being made, she said. The cause of death had not been determined, though the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story had another spelling for Iran D. Rivers.
