Dwayne Jackson named interim fire chief

— The Clayton County Board of Commissioners voted 4-0 Tuesday night to appoint Clayton County fire Deputy Chief Dwayne Jackson as interim fire chief.

Jackson, who is also the county's fire marshal, will begin his new job Saturday, the day after outgoing Chief Jeff Hood retires. Jackson said his appointment came on the 23rd anniversary of his hiring by the fire department.

He was nominated by commission Chairman Jeff Turner. Commissioner Michael Edmondson was not present for the vote.

After Jackson was appointed, Hood and nearly a half dozen other fire department employees shook his hand and left.

Jackson said he will apply for the permanent position.
