HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Members of two Houston fire stations today remembered four fellow firefighters killed in the Southwest Inn Motel fire.

Crews from stations 51 and 68 left flowers, flags, and firefighting gear on the fence outside the motel site in southwest Houston. There is also a large billboard above that location with photos of the four firefighters killed in the fire and a captain who was badly injured.

Two years ago today, Anne Sullivan, Robert Garner, Robert Bebee, and Matthew Renaud died fighting the motel fire. Captain William Dowling was hurt in that fire and ended up losing both legs.
