City will name new fire chief Wednesday

The City of Spokane will name its new fire chief Wednesday.

The new chief replaces Bobby Williams, who officially retired earlier this year.

This month, the city brought in several candidates to interview for the job and to meet with the community and city leaders.

The city will make the announcement Wednesday morning.

Sources familiar with the search tell KXLY4, the new chief will be current Interim Chief and longtime Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer.
