Soldier Township's long-time fire chief is retiring.
Richard Maginot turned the reigns over to the new chief, Dave Meek, in a ceremony Thursday night.
Maginot has been chief for 27 years at Soldier Township. He says it's been a great run serving the community. Meek says assuming the duties of chief will be a challenge, as will be filling Maginot's shoes.
Maginot has served on the department since 198. He was appointed chief in 1985.
