We are 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.
