BOISE — Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Boise Fire Department spokeswoman Char Jackson confirmed the move, as first reported by CBS-2 News.

Doan was placed on leave as of Monday, Jackson wrote in a message to the Idaho Press. She said she could not say why he was placed on leave, citing the fact that it is a personnel matter.

Asked who will be acting as chief while Doan is on leave, Jackson said the matter had not yet been decided.

“Once we know more we will update you as quickly as possible,” according to an internal email sent to department staff members Monday afternoon. “We are communicating with the mayor’s office on next steps.”
