— The town is looking for a new fire chief, but officials declined to say why the previous chief left.

Fire Chief Lanny Dillehay's employment with the town ended Friday after seven years, officials said. He had been linked to the Oxford Fire Department for three decades.

Police Chief John Wolford will double as interim fire chief until a permanent replacement is chosen, officials said.
