Commission puts fired firefighters back on the job.


AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) Augusta  commissioners  overturn a fire department firing.

Sargent Charles Masters was terminated from the department  April 11th for allegedly working while out on Workman’s Comp.

This afternoon following a close door legal session commissioners voted to settle  all claims with Masters.

City attorneys say the action resulted in revoking Masters  termination and placing him on 30 days suspension instead.

Last year Masters was the head of the Augusta Fire fighters association that accused Fire Chief Chris James or missing city funds when purchasing some problem plagued fire trucks.
