Gov. Gina Raimondo has appointed a new fire marshal.

Johnston Fire Chief Timothy McLaughlin confirmed the governor approached him about the job last week. He says he has notified the town's mayor, and his appointment needs to be confirmed by the state Senate.

McLaughlin has served as the town's fire chief for the past seven years. He previously served as the chief of Pawtucket, and he worked in the city's fire department for 29 years.
