Plainfield Fire Chief Ralph Wells has resigned his position at the Plainfield Fire Department but will stay on as a department member. Also resigning their position was Michelle Wells, wife of now former chief Ralph Wells, as Chief Medical Officer.
There was a vote at the department whether or not to keep Ralph Wells on as Chief after a heated discussion. The vote ended up in a tie, 7-7, with the deciding vote belonging to another family member, Jason Wells. Jason Wells voted in favor to keep his father on as chief, however, Ralph Wells still decided to resign.
This may or may not be in light of the sex charges against a minor that Kevin Wells is facing at the current time. Kevin Wells, who was the Fire Department Captain, resigned completely from the Fire Department. Kevin is the son of both Ralph and Michelle Wells. Wolverine Radio has received conflicting reports on who has been named interim chief of the Plainfield Fire Department. More as it is available on this developing story.
