Bulletin: Ladue Fire Chief Resigns. Last Day is Sept. 7

Chief Erin Hinson under investigation for financial irregularities with his other position, chief of the St. Clair Fire Protection District.

Less than a year into the job, Ladue Fire Chief Eric Hinson has abruptly resigned as chief of the Ladue Fire Department. He replaced long-time Chief Ted Jury who retired and took over the reigns of the Brentwood Fire Department.

Chief Hinson served in dual roles as chief of the St. Clair, Missouri Fire Protection District. The Hinson family has been associated with fire fighting duties in this small town in Missouri for as many years as anyone can remember.

The Washington Missourian newspaper e.Missourian.com reports on the entire episode.

Ladue Mayor Anthony Bommarito and Michael Woolridge, chief administrator for the city were in a meeting and unavailable for comment.
