NEWPORT, N.C. -

9 On Your Side has confirmed Newport Fire Chief Drummond Figg was fired Friday morning.

Town Manager Dick Casey also submitted his resignation letter to the Town Council on Friday. The News-Times reports the two are unrelated.

"Chief Figg has been terminated, effective immediately," the manager said in a statement. "I took action as the result of an investigation by a committee formed by the town council to look into the operations of the fire department," he said. "Their findings led me to conclude that members of the department had lost confidence in Fire Chief Figg and his ability to manage the fire department."

Casey's retirement is effective July 1.
