NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire city of Nashua has selected its next fire chief.
The Telegraph of Nashua, NH reports Brian Rhodes was named Nashua Fire Rescue Chief by the city fire commission Monday.
Rhodes currently serves as the assistant chief of the department. Rhodes will succeed Chief Steven Galipeau when he retires in April.
