Long time Jonesboro Firefighter retires

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- A Jonesboro firefighter says goodbye after years of service.

A retirement party was held for Captain Jack Key of the Jonesboro Fire Department. Key has been a firefighter for 28 years and says he's looking forward to the future.

Captain Jack Key says, "I'd like to spend more time with my family. That's one of the sacrifices that we make. I was working here when we got married and its something I never got to do, which is be a full time dad."
