The chief of the New Florence Volunteer Fire Department is accused of threatening to kill a firefighter from a neighboring department. Keith Boring is facing charges of harassment and making terroristic threats in connection with an incident in August between Boring and an assistant chief from the Seward Volunteer Fire Company. According to court paperwork, an on-duty police officer witnessed Boring speeding through a perimeter and traffic control set up by the Seward Volunteer Fire Company for a search detail. Boring allegedly called the assistant chief and threatened to kill him, saying, “I don’t care who else is around, including your family or whoever gets in the way. I’ll kill them, too,” the court paperwork said. Boring's arrest came just weeks after New Florence's assistant fire chief, Kenneth Steiner, was suspended over allegations that he had sex with an aspiring junior firefighter. Steiner was arrested and charged with indecent sexual assault.
