PENTICTON — A former Penticton Fire Chief is suing the City for wrongful dismissal and several other claims.

Wayne Harold Williams, 56, served the City of Penticton with a notice of civil claim on June 21, 2016.

In an exclusive interview with Global News, Wayne Williams says over the span of four days in February 2015, the fire department responded to three major fires.

Williams believes this incident triggered his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
