SHERMAN, TX -- After a resignation, the Sherman Fire Department has found a replacement for Fire Marshall.

Jamie Baggs has accepted the position and will take over October 1st. While he doesn't officially start until Monday, Chief J.J. Jones says he has already been in the field working fire investigations. Baggs has military experience and a number of years on the job as a fire fighter. Jones says he's the right man for the high ranked position.

"He's been with the department for 8 years. He's a captain here at Central on the ladder truck, he's also a tactical medic, and part of our technical rescue team, so he's a great fit for the staff position," says Chief Jones.

Baggs takes the place of former Sherman Fire Marshall Nathan Huffman who resigned following a DUI charge.
