They risk their lives to do this, and sometimes they give their lives. This was the case for four firefighters in Houston.

They died fighting a five-alarm fire at a motel and an adjoining restaurant along a heavily-trafficked expressway in the Texas city. High temperatures and humidity, as well as winds, made it a difficult task for at least one hundred units and more than 150 firefighters fighting to control the flames.
