Fresno's Fire Chief Resigns

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

Fresno's Fire Chief Rob Brown on Tuesday resigned, amid domestic violence charges.

City Manager Bruce Rudd today issued the following statement about the resignation of Brown:

"I have accepted Rob Brown's resignation as City of Fresno's Fire Chief. I want to thank him for his service to the City and the contributions that he made to the Fire Department. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Rudd said the City will begin a national search for Brown's replacement. Deputy Fire Chief Kerri Donis will continue her duties as Interim Fire Chief.

Brown was arrested in June for a domestic violence incident with his wife, Beth, and his family.

Details released in court revealed that was one of several incidents in the family's past. According to a sheriff's report, Brown's wife told investigators of four to five incidents of domestic violence that she did not report while the Browns lived in another state, before moving to Fresno.
