A Hamilton Township Volunteer firefighter died Wednesday at the fire station, hours after he helped battle an early morning barn fire.   Delaware County Coroner Scott Hahn said Jeffery Alan Blackmer, 42, was found unresponsive at the fire station just before 10 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.  Hahn said Blackmer's death appears to be "cardiac-related" but his official cause of death will not be released until an autopsy is completed.
