NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - After 35 years on the job, Natchez Fire Chief Oliver Stewart will retire June 30.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1Ngt1Pb) Stewart became a Natchez-Adams County firefighter in 1980. He was 26 years old.

Natchez Mayor Butch Brown says the city has already begun the process of hiring a new fire chief.

Brown says the city’s Civil Service Commission will prepare a list of three candidates, and then the board of aldermen will interview applicants.

Stewart said so far, the city has interviewed all four battalion chiefs - David Williams, Chris Gibson, Aaron Welsey and Leyland Rymer - for the position.

There has been no set date for when the city will announce Stewart’s replacement.
