Firefighters found to be involved in a BX firehouse sex scandal could be fired
The city's fire commissioner has vowed to fire any firefighter that is found to have been involved in a sex scandal at a Bronx firehouse known as 'Animal House.'
Last week, investigators looked into allegations by a 34-year-old woman who claims she was raped by on-duty firefighters at the Ladder Company 33, Engine 75 firehouse. Fourteen firefighters, including three fire officials, have since been reassigned. Two firefighters were immediately suspended.
The woman later changed her story and said the sex was consensual. Police also found no evidence to pursue a criminal case. Still, Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta says anyone involved in sexual activity will be fired.
Mayor Bloomberg says he supports Scoppetta's decision.
