REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s chief deputy state fire marshal has become the state’s top fire official.

The Department of Commerce says Jeff Hussey is the new state fire marshal, a job he had filled on an interim basis for the past couple of months. He succeeds Larry Flowers, who retired in May after six years in that role.

Hussey is a retired Granville fire chief who previously worked at the Mifflin Township Fire Department.

His new appointment took effect Sunday. He’s scheduled to have a formal swearing-in ceremony on Aug. 8 at the fire marshal’s office in Reynoldsburg, east of Columbus.

The division is responsible for fire safety education, regulation, investigation and enforcement and training firefighters.
