Hyannis has a new Fire Chief.
The Hyannis Fire District Board of Commissioners selected Barnstable’s Deputy Fire Chief, Peter Burke Jr to succeed Harold Brunelle who retired last fall. Burke came to Barnstable in 2012 after serving ten years as a Lt in the Seekonk Fire Department.
The Board received 30 resumes for the position and said the decision came down to Burke and acting Fire Chief Dean Melanson.
Barring any issues with a contract, Burke is expected to begin his new job in July.
