Boston Fire Chief Resigns Amid Bombings Controversy

Fire Chief Steven Abraira was sworn in on Dec. 8, 2011.

After two years on the job, Boston’s top fire official has resigned in the wake of his supposed controversial handling of response to the Boston Marathon Bombings.

The Boston Globe reports Steve E. Abraira, chief of the Boston Fire Department, has resigned following complaints from 13 deputy chiefs who have accused him of failing to take control of the scene of the bombings April 15.

In an April letter to Mayor Thomas Menino, the deputy chiefs claim Abraira left the scene in the “hand of law enforcement,” according to the story.

Abraira has argued that the scene appeared under control when he arrived. 

Abraira was the first Boston Fire chief in history hired from outside its union, the Globe reports.
