One community said goodbye to a 19-year veteran of the Cobb County Fire Department.
Firefighter Stacey Leigh Boulware died early Monday, officials said.
“We extend our thoughts and prayers to the family of firefighter Stacey Leigh Boulware during this difficult time,” Cobb County fire Lt. Dan Dupree said.

Boulware, 44, passed her physical tests Monday morning. She then responded to two incidents, including a medical call involving a full arrest. A few hours later, she collapsed at Station 5 in Vinings, Dupree said.
The procession for Boulware left the funeral home on Macland Road in Marietta at 11:45 a.m. Saturday.
Channel 2's Steve Gehlbach was there as dozens of firetrucks lined up for the procession.
Gehlbach was told firefighters from surrounding jurisdictions are covering the fire houses in Cobb County so they can go to Boulware's funeral.
