In this Nov. 16, 2011 photo, Boston Fire Chief Steve Abraira poses for a photo at a fire station in Boston. In a letter dated Monday, June 3, 2013, Abraira said he is resigning effecting on Friday, saying public criticism from his deputies for the way he responded to the marathon bombings has made it impossible for him to do his job. Thirteen deputies had complained in a letter to Mayor Tom Menino that Abraira's failure to take command of the Boston Marathon bombing scene was indefensible and part of a pattern of shirking leadership.
