Ware’s fire chief is on administrative leave while an investigation goes on.

Ware Town Manager Stuart Beckley told 22News that Fire Chief Thomas Coulombe was escorted by police out of the fire headquarters on Wednesday. Beckley said that Coulombe is on leave while the town conducts an investigation into what he calls a “personnel matter.”

Beckley could not provide specifics at this time about what the investigation involves.
