BUFFALO, Iowa (AP) — The longtime fire chief in the Iowa town of Buffalo died over the weekend.

Adams had been with the Buffalo Fire Department for 48 years and served a chief for 33 years.

Aleksiejczyk says Adams was a great community leader and was respected in town.

The fire department became a family affair for Adams. One of his sons retired from the fire department as a lieutenant and three of his grandsons are with the department now.
