    A memorial service will be held this weekend for a veteran Houston firefighter who died after suffering burns while battling a house blaze.

    The Houston Fire Department says 46-year-old Daniel Groover will be remembered Saturday during a church service at The Woodlands.

    Groover died Wednesday at a hospital after being rescued from the fire scene. Investigators say Groover was inside a burning residence when he lost radio contact with other firefighters.

    He'd been a Houston firefighter for 21 years.

    The service begins Saturday at 10 a.m. at Woodlands Church.
