Twin Falls Fire Chief Leaves Post After a Year on the Job
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) The city of Twin Falls is without a fire chief after the current one resigned. The city of Twin Falls announced Tuesday afternoon that Chief Tim Soule submitted his resignation. The city did not give a reason for his leaving after confirming earlier this year to KMVT News that an internal, non-criminal, investigation was ongoing concerning the fire chief. The three battalion chiefs are running the day to day operations. Soule came from Minden, Nevada after serving as Deputy Chief of the East Fork Fire Protection District. In a prepared statement Soule said:
“The Twin Falls community is fortunate to have such outstanding men and women serving their life safety needs with the Twin Falls Fire Department. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of initiatives, over the past year, that have benefited the Department, City and surrounding community.”
In a written statement Travis Rothweiler, Twin Falls City Manager said Soule recognized not all professional relationships are the right fit.
