JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) - A fire chief shared by two suburban Des Moines communities has been placed on paid leave.

Officials say Johnston and Grimes chief Jim Krohse began the leave Monday afternoon. Johnston City Manager Jim Sanders says he can’t provide any details because it’s a personnel matter. The Associated Press was unable to reach Krohse at a phone listing in nearby Ankeny.

Sanders says Johnston Chief Deputy Michael Gentosi will lead fire operations in Johnston and Deputy Chief Ron Schipper will lead operations in Grimes.
