Dawson -- 

The only employee of the Terrell County Fire Department has been fired.

Fire Chief Clint Adkins, whose department used prisoners to fight fires, was fired March 8th.

The reason? He agreed to ship an inmate belongings he left behind and accepted a money order to pay for it.

Adkins says he didn't know he was doing anything wrong and once he found out he shouldn't have agreed to do it, he returned the money order to the inmate's mother.

The department of corrections will no longer allow him to supervise inmates.

Adkins must now turn in all county property, including his vehicle, badge and cell phone and has 30 days to leave his county owned home.
