saddened by the news of the passing of Captain Dwight Bazile with the Houston
Fire Department. Captain Bazile had been fighting for his life after collapsing at the scene of a fire on Thursday, February 19th,
2015. Captain Bazile entered the Fire Department in 1977 and served our city
and the residents of District D from Fire Station 46, located at the corner of
Scott and Corder, for most of his career. Genora and I ask that you keep his
wife and son, Pamela and Dwight Bazille II, in your thoughts and prayers during
this time of sorrow. May Captain Bazile rest in peace.
