City investigators release findings into allegations at a Bronx firehouse
A probe by the city's Department of Investigations into sexual misconduct allegations at a firehouse in University Heights found that firefighters broke scores of FDNY regulations.
The investigation began after a woman accused three firefighters at Ladder 33, Engine 75 of raping her inside the firehouse in August. The Bronx district attorney declined to investigate and that's when the city investigators got involved.
One of the firefighters accused has already been fired, but city investigators feel the remaining two should also be terminated. The commissioner of the city investigation department has issued several recommendations for the FDNY, including the elimination of firehouse nicknames. That change has already been implemented.
