Oklahoma City firefighters decorate heart attack victim's house

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma City firefighters spent part of their weekend decorating the home of a heart attack victim they couldn't save.

A crew from Station 30 in northern Oklahoma City found Vince Romo dead in his home when they responded to an emergency call earlier this month. Romo left behind a wife, twin six-year-old boys and an infant daughter.

Fire Major Brian Stanaland says the firefighters were touched by the children facing a holiday without their father and decided they could at least continue Romo's tradition of decorating for Christmas.

Eight firefighters strung white lights from Romo's house as Romo's father and children watched.
