PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Prescott has named Division Chief Eric Kriwer as the city's acting fire chief.

City officials announced Friday that Kriwer will serve until Prescott recruits and selects a permanent fire chief.

Kriwer has worked for the Prescott Fire Department for seven years.

He helped provide direction and planning for the memorial and funeral services for 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots killed by the Yarnell Hill Fire on June 30.
