The Orange County Fire Authority remains without a fire chief Friday after the authority’s board of directors failed to appoint one following the abrupt resignation of former Fire Chief Jeff Bowman.

The board met Thursday night to discuss the possible appointment of a fire chief but took no action, said the authority’s spokesman, Battalion Chief Marc Stone.

Interim Chief Dave Anderson will continue to lead the organization through the transition, Stone said.

Bowman resigned Aug. 17 after three years in the post. He had been was hired in part to help “groom” someone in the ranks to succeed him, said Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer.
