The City of Sault Ste. Marie and Fire Chief Mike Figliola have ended their employment relationship effective Monday, May 8, 2017.

Recruitment for a new Fire Chief is underway. In the meantime, Deputy Chief Paul Milosevich will serve in the role in an interim capacity while continuing to oversee Fire Education, Prevention and Emergency Management.

It is intended that there will be no disruption to the delivery of City services during the transition.


  1. Hey Burn-E. I thought you left town. I know I for one, would like an explanation of why this Chief so suddenly left employment at the city. It is questionable to say the least that the city themselves put so much backing behind this one person and then all of a sudden he is gone. What will it cost the taxpayers? What is the reason for his departure? I’m sure future employers of this person would like to know why.
    And Burn-E. What in the h.ll does this story have to do with the firefighters? I see no demands. I don’t read anything about them asking for anything. Everyone that reads your garbage, knows that you don’t like firefighters. Firefighters are some of the most generous people I know. They give so much back to our community. They have continued to do this throughout the entire fiasco that was created by this person who has finally left. You are definitely entitled to your opinion but anything incorrect is nothing more than slanderous.
    It’s time for this city to right the ship. And where is the Fire Marshall report that was due in mid March? Is that being swept under a rug too?
    Have a great day Burn-E

  2. Here we go…here they come with their hands out…just in time for city council budget cuts. Ask the greedy firefighters’ union where the money is going to come from, for their most ridiculous demands. Who will have to do without, so they can continue their greedy ways…

  3. Good that Mayor and Council finally realized the mistake they made in backing someone who had no idea what he was doing. With the information they get from the Fire Marshal and Fire Underwriters maybe they can make a “real” educated decision in matters pertaining to the Fire Department.

  4. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya.
    Good riddance you big crybaby.
    The city is on the right track now.
