SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane County Fire District is in mourning Tuesday night after learning that one of its firefighters died.

Below is the full statement released by Spokane Fire District 10 about the firefighter's death: 

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a brother, Shane Robins, a firefighter that lived in our community and responded out of station 10-5 . On Monday while on vacation in Maui Hawaii with some family friends , Shane was involved in an as yet unknown situation while snorkeling and was reported missing by his wife. After several minutes Shane was found in the water and attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Shane joined District 10 just over two years ago, and has operated as a traditional volunteer firefighter since his graduation from recruit academy in June of 2013. He is an inspirational person that joined the District in order to support and help his community. He inspired many of the other students in his academy in his spirit and enthusiasm while being consistently positive, traits that he continued to demonstrate each time he was at training or on an incident.

Shane leaves behind his wife and two adult children as well as several Grandchildren which he adored and still live in our community. Please keep Shane and his family in your prayers and thoughts.
