Houston Fire Department Statement Regarding the Line of Duty Death of Captain William ‘Iron Bill’ Dowling

HOUSTON, March 7, 2017 – The Houston Fire Department 

The men and women of the Houston Fire Department mourn the loss Captain William ‘Iron Bill’ Dowling.  Captain William Dowling has died on Today, March 7, 2017.  Captain Dowling entered the Houston Fire Department 17 years ago, on March 21, 2000.  He retired on June 1, 2013 after suffering career ending and life altering injuries in the Southwest Inn fire on May 31, 2013, that killed four other Houston firefighters. The Southwest Inn fire is considered the deadliest day in Houston Fire Department history.  Captain Dowling passed away today due to complications of the injuries.  The incredible strength and bravery he showed as he and his family rebuilt his life – and theirs – after his injuries inspired us all.  Please keep the Dowling family and all of the men and women of our fire department in your prayers.
