ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Assistant Chief of the Albany Fire Department was fired Thursday for using city personnel and property for his personal use, and then lying about it.

City officials say 45-year-old Rod Jolivette on April 3rd ordered a fire truck and crew to help him clean up his aunt and uncle's house on Gail Avenue.

Water had gotten into their basement after a hard rain. The three person fire crew spent an hour at the home moving furniture and pulling up carpet.

Investigators report Jolivette tried to blame other firefighters for the incident.

Jolivette had been a city of Albany employee for 23 years.
