LAS VEGAS -- Deputy Fire Chief Scott Fuller has been named the city of Las Vegas interim fire chief. He brings more than 21 years of service with Las Vegas Fire & Rescue to the job, having served as a firefighter, engineer, captain, battalion chief, assistant fire chief and deputy fire chief.

Fuller takes over for retired Chief Mike Myers, whose last day with the department was Thursday, 2013. Myers had been with the Fire Department since 1986, and had served as chief for the past two years. The process for finding a permanent replacement is expected to be finalized this month.

As a deputy chief, Fuller has served in Operations, Support Services, Business and Planning and Homeland Security. He also serves on the Nevada Homeland Security Commission.

“I’m excited about this new challenge, and I’m going to ensure that the high service standards that make Las Vegas Fire & Rescue one of the top departments in the country continue,” said Fuller, who added that he does not intend to pursue the job on a permanent basis.

Fuller was promoted to deputy chief in January 2008, and he joined Las Vegas Fire & Rescue in July 1991.

Fuller has also served more than 30 years in the National Guard. He is currently a colonel and commands the 65th Field Artillery Brigade based in Utah.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
