Crestwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

The longtime fire chief of Crestwood resigned suddenly last week and is now under investigation by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office. Chief Jon Bruce, 54, left the force after a “difference of opinion of how he spent money” according to Crestwood Mayor Lou Presta who said that he didn’t think Bruce’s expenditures were possible but would not provide amounts or elaborate on what the money was spent on. 

Bruce, a career firefighter, had been fire chief in Crestwood since at least 1999. With Bruce now out, Deputy Chief Duane Owen is now in charge of the fire department, which employs nearly 65 people.

Crestwood is a suburb with about 11,000 residents just south of the Tri-State Tollway near Cicero Ave., approximately 24 miles from Chicago.
