    I think simply because it is better English than "he was fired"

    Just like "I've got a house " is better English than "I have a house"

    The following is taken from Online English Courses: Causative Verbs
    Get is often used instead of have. For example:
    - I got my computer fixed
    - I had my computer fixed.
    These two sentences mean the same thing.

    - I got my jacket cleane.
    - I had my jacket cleaned.
    These two sentences mean the same thing.

    Causative verbs are often used with negative experiences. In these situations it's more common to use have. For example:
    - I had my wallet stolen.
    - I got my wallet stolen.
    (I didn't actually cause my wallet to be stolen - someone stole my wallet from me)
    - She had her window smashed.
    - She got her window smashed.
