Instead of overseeing all the fires, as is his command level job, he runs off to personally conduct a search for an employee's missing relative.
The State Fire Marshal is directly answerable to the Superintendent of State Police, who immediately replaced him citing no confidence. The State Fire Marshal then resigned.
I wonder if there is more to the story, because a lot of people affected by the fires are criticizing officials in Oregon, particularly the governor, for not mobilizing more resources, requesting aerial tankers, calling up more Oregon National Guard, and asking for help from other states and the feds. Instead, Trump finally stepped in to do what officials here are not doing.
Aside from going from lite blue to dark blue, Oregon government has become out of touch with its citizens and totally incompetent.
