    AUSTIN (AP) - State fire marshal's investigators are looking
    into the deaths of two volunteer firefighters killed in separate
    parts of the state, the agency announced Tuesday.
    Capt. Roger Michael Dunn, 48, of the Clute Volunteer Fire
    Department died Monday at a house fire in Freeport. Travis Wiens,
    28, of the Wichita West Volunteer Fire Department, died Monday at a
    grass fire just south of Wichita Falls.
    Autopsies are being conducted in both cases.
    The state fire marshal's office is working with the departments
    in Brazoria and Wichita counties to determine the cause of death
    for each man, according to a news release.
    Dunn collapsed just minutes after assisting another firefighter
    with gear. He was rushed to the Brazosport Memorial Hospital, where
    he was pronounced dead. Investigators are awaiting an autopsy
    report from the Galveston County medical examiner.
    Wiens was riding in a cage on the front bumper of a fire truck.
    A pickup truck and the fire truck collided, throwing Wiens to the
    ground. He was run over by the fire truck.
    Wiens was pronounced dead at the scene, and his body was taken
    to the Tarrant County medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
    Dunn had been with the Clute department for about 16 years.
    Wiens had been with the Wichita West department for just more than
    a month and a half.
    State fire marshal's investigators have examined six
    line-of-duty deaths of Texas firefighters since September 2001.
