Morris Bridges, 41, a member of the West Volunteer Fire Department and a fire sprinkler technician for Action Fire Pros, died in the explosion at West Fertilizer Co. in West, Texas.

MORRIS BRIDGES JR.: Father, motorcyclist

Bridges, 41, had been with West's volunteer fire department for three years. His wife says his last words as he left home to fight the fertilizer plant fire were telling his infant son that he loved him and he'd be "right back." Bridges grew up in Dallas but lived in West. He loved to ride motorcycles and go fishing and camping. He is survived by his wife, Carmen, and three children.
