FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Fairfax County is getting a new fire chief.

The county Board of Supervisors announced Tuesday that Richard R. Bowers Jr., the Montgomery County fire chief since 2008, will take over in late April.

Bowers has spent more than 35 years with Montgomery County and now manages a department of more than 2,100 firefighters and rescuers.

He replaces Ronald L. Mastin, who is retiring on May 7.
