Fire district board removes chief in Casa Grande

Updated:

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - The fire chief in Arizona City has been removed from his job.

The fire district board cited a lack of leadership and motivation to further his education in terminating Paul Sabel this week.

Sabel tells the Casa Grande Dispatch that he's not sure whether he'll take legal action against the board. He had been earning a yearly salary of $52,000.

The board members were elected last November after a change in state law. Previously, the fire chief was chosen by voters.

About 65 people showed up at the meeting where the board voted to oust Sabel. One man presented a petition with more than 250 signatures in support of Sabel.
