FYFFE, AL (WAFF) -

The city of Fyffe has chosen not to reappoint its fire chief.

Monday night, the city council chose not to reappoint Jimmy Long and instead to appoint Grant Wood, a relative newcomer to the department.

City councilman Paul Cagle said he recommended Wood because of his certifications.

Long said he's disappointed.

"Experience is a big thing and being so young and arrogant, I'm afraid he's going to get somebody hurt," said Long.

No word if Assistant Chief Harlan Owens will be retained.
