AUSTIN, MN — A southern Minnesota fire chief will be putting out fires in a new state, starting next month.

Austin Fire Chief Mickey Healey is accepting a job with the South Montgomery County Emergency Services in Spring, Texas, located just north of Houston.

As we told you on Friday, Healey submitted his resignation to the city of Austin.

Healey says he’s excited to get back on the fire engine and respond to calls.

“At this point right now, the way the area is developing and how the department is growing that it might be a very good fit for me to go back onto the fire engines and get back to the emergency services back out on the street and it’s an opportunity we decided to take now,” Healey said.

He adds he is very thankful to the citizens of Austin for their support of the Austin Fire Department.
He says his last day with the Austin Fire Department will be on June 5th.
