Internal Investigation Leads To Kenner Fire Chief's Firing

The fire chief of the Jefferson Parish city of Kenner is out.

Mayor Ben Zahn says John Hellmers was fired yesterday after he had been placed on administrative leave early last month pending the outcome of an internal investigation. Hellmers can appeal the firing.

Reports say the probe began after complaints of budget numbers being manipulated, bills going unpaid and allegations of city computers being misused.

Kenner city officials say Interim Fire Chief Ryan Bergeron will remain in charge for the time being.
