SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gary Loesch was let go as chief of the Sacramento Fire Department Thursday afternoon.

He didn't elaborate on the other three reasons. 

The Sacramento Fire Department confirmed that Gary Loesch, who had been chief since 2018, was no longer an employee with the city.

A fire department spokesperson couldn't speak as to whether Loesch was fired from the position.
