GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York City fire chief has announced his retirement three weeks after making anti-Semitic remarks about a Jewish town supervisor.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1evpWZl ) says Fairview Fire Chief Anthony LoGiudice made the announcement Thursday night at a meeting of the Fairview Fire Commission.

He declined to give a reason but said his decision was not related to the criticism he received for the remarks about Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.

LoGiudice apologized for the remarks on March 28.

The anti-Semitic remarks were contained in a federal age discrimination lawsuit.
