The first black firefighter in the Irving, Texas Fire Department is suing the department, claiming it promoted a less qualified white applicant to assistant fire chief.

The firefighter, hired in 1979 and currently a captain, has been passed over three times for the job.

Only three of the Irving Fire Department’s 320 firefighters are black. Twelve percent of Irving citizens are black.
