New fire chief named in Calif.

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. — A 24-year veteran with the city's Fire Department has been named as its newest fire chief.

City Manager Thaddeus McCormack named Mike Crook, 45, of Chino Hills to succeed Alex Rodriguez, who retired a week ago.

"He's very solid - a very even keeled guy," McCormack said. "He's well respected by his peers, the division chiefs, the City Council, and the community," he said. "He's a top-notch leader. Given all the changes we've gone through, he's a source of stability who will serve the department well."
