HOUSTON (CBS Houston) On Sunday, the bodies of four fallen HFD firefighters were transported to funeral homes. The four firefighters were killed battling a blaze at a building located on the Southwest Freeway Friday afternoon.

On Sunday afternoon, the bodies of the HFD firefighters were taken from the medical examiner’s office to a funeral home in southeast Houston.

The following fallen firefighters include: EMT Cpt. Matthew Renaud, 35, Engineer Operator EMT Robert Bebee, 41, Firefighter EMT Robert Garner, 29 and Probationary Firefighter Anne Sullivan, 24. All died while fighting a fire at the Southwest Inn after the roof collapsed.

Additional reports indicate that Renaud and Bebee were both 12-year veterans with HFD and were assigned to Station 51, while Garner and Sullivan were with Station 68.

What began as a four-alarm blaze was then upgraded to a five-alarm fire and sent 13 injured firefighters to local hospitals Friday afternoon.

Three firefighters remain hospitalized with one of the three in critical condition and the two others in stable condition.
