The swearing-in ceremony for Laurel's Interim Fire Chief is being postponed.

Laurel Training Battalion Chief Jimmy Bunch will not officially take office until October 16th.

City officials say Bunch is currently serving as acting fire chief but can't officially take office until the current chief David Chance's retirement goes in effect.

Chance submitted his letter of retirement after being with the Laurel Fire Department for 29 years.

Chance is currently on administrative leave and is not expected to return.
