Union Head Says He Was Targeted For What He Said

A Holyoke fire official is suspended  after an internal investigation into a deadly fire on New Year's Day.   

Lieutenant Chad Cunningham's suspension is for a five-day period, and  he's also been demoted to a firefighter private, according to the  chairman of the Holyoke Board of Fire Commissioners.  

Cunningham is  accused of improperly commanding his company during an emergency and not  following a direct order in connection to the fire at a home on North  East Street that resulted in three deaths.  

Cunningham is president of  the Holyoke Firefighters Union, which took a vote of no confidence  against Chief Alex Morse for the department's "brownout" truck policy in  the wake of the fire.
