Le Roy fire elects Hogle as chief
The membership of the Le Roy Volunteer Fire Department elected Tim Hogle as the department's new chief in a vote Thursday evening.
Hogle has moved up the ranks incrementally over the past several years from lieutenant, to captain and through the chief ranks, most recently serving as first assistant, to become chief.
"It's been a lot of hard work, a lot of training, a lot of state classes, a lot of man hours here at the fire hall and in fire service," said Hogle (pictured, left).
He said becoming chief is a chance "to give back to the community, lead the guys and follow in the right path of the chiefs before me. "
Tom Wood, on the right, who has one prior term as chief, said the membership supported Hogle for the position because of his hard work.
"I think he's done a pretty good job throughout his career and as assistant chief and as an upcoming officer as a captain and lieutenant," Wood said.
