NORWICH – The Chenango County Bureau of Fire recently retired one of its most experienced fire investigators. Carl Chawgo served the county for over 26 years.
“I really did enjoy it, but I figured it was time to get out of digging holes and running around at all times of the night,” said Chawgo, who is now 66.
At the time of his retirement, Chawgo was Supervisor of Fire Investigation. He began as a volunteer at the South New Berlin fire department and rose through the ranks, also becoming Deputy Fire Coordinator for the county.
