EUNICE, NEW MEXICO - A new fire chief is taking over in Eunice.

56-year-old Richard Cummins beat out 12 other candidates for the job.

He's a career firefighter who had trained recruits for the state and the Hobbs Fire Department.

He replaces Ron Grogan who was fired in December after he and other firefighters were arrested on charges involving a radar detector stolen from a car at an accident scene.
