CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A spokesperson with the Charleston fire department has confirmed that fire chief Thomas Carr has been hospitalized just two days before his retirement party.

Carr announced he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in April 2010 and would remain throughout the remainder of his five year commitment.

Carr then announced last September to members of the Charleston Fire Department at the Charleston Maritime Center that due to a new diagnosis, he would have to cut his time short with the department. He plans to retire on March 1, 2012 due to health concerns.

The retirement party scheduled for Friday has been canceled until further notice.
