MIDLAND - Midland may need to start looking for a new fire chief, that's because current Fire Chief Robert Isbell may be taking off to North Texas.

Isbell is one of three candidates being interviewed for the Fire Chief position in Plano, which is just north of Dallas.

The Plano native wants to get back to his stomping grounds and says that a lot of fire departments try to measure up to Plano's making this position an excellent opportunity.

Besides fire chief, the Midland Fire Department has plenty of positions to fill for paramedics.

Currently, nine applicants are being considered but applications are still being taken.
