Agency: Report clears chief in Black Forest fire
Question of the Day
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The fire department that first responded to a deadly wildfire in the Black Forest community says an outside investigation has cleared its chief of misconduct.
Black Forest Fire/Rescue District on Wednesday released a summary of a report it commissioned.
The fire started in June northeast of Colorado Springs, killing two people and destroying 486 houses. El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa has criticized Black Forest Fire/Rescue Chief Bob Harvey’s handling of the blaze.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (http://tinyurl.com/mep3swg ) the fire department says the report found no professional misconduct by Harvey.
Maketa released a statement saying the report is based on opinion, not fact.
