SAVAGE, Minn. (AP) - Savage Fire Chief Andrain Roach has resigned after only three months on the job.
    
The Star Tribune reports Roach cited what he called unrealistic expectations from city leaders and a general lack of support that hindered efforts to modernize the department.
    
Roach says in his resignation letter that inadequate staffing levels citywide - paired with round-the-clock demands - have taken a "mental, physical and emotional toll."
    
The Savage City Council accepted Roach's resignation at Monday night's meeting without discussion. Deputy Fire Chief Andrew Slama was tapped to replace him as interim chief.
