FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Deputy Chief for the Fort Wayne Fire Department reported back to work.

Adam O'Connor was suspended last week for a "rule infraction."

It's not clear how long O'Connor was actually suspended.

However, Chief Eric Lahey told the Fire Merit Commission Tuesday he can suspend employees for up to five days without taking it to the commission.

Lahey wouldn't comment on what led to O'Connor's suspension.
