Grand Forks' newest Fire Marshal is following in his dad's footsteps.

Firefighter Brian Geatz was promoted to the position of Fire Marshal with his dad and mom pinning on the badges at a ceremony this morning. His father was with the Grand Forks fire department for more than 30 years, serving in the position of Fire Marshal until he retired in 2007.

Geatz: "Him having the position, I kind of knew what it was about and about the challenges that came with it and the excitement that came with it," said Geatz.

Geatz will serve as one of three Fire Marshals within the Grand Forks fire department.
