Fire chief on administrative leave during investigation


The Kelly Kelton Fire Chief, Bryan Farr, has been placed on administrative leave by the fire board, during an investigation.

Kelly Kelton is a volunteer fire department within Union County.

The fire board says they are investigating Farr for how he dealt with an incident commander on the fire scene.

Also that night, the Sheriff’s Office took Farr in for a breathalyzer test while on scene fighting a fire in Lockhart on February 8th.

Farr’s test was inconclusive and was taken back to his vehicle.

The Kelly Kelton Fire Board currently doesn’t have an alcohol policy in place, they are currently looking at adopting one.

Farr will remain on administrative leave until the next board meeting on March 7th. Farr is not allowed to respond to any fire calls in the area.
