The bureau is confident he’s using other Facebook pages as well and says this impostor is not and has never been a City of Pittsburgh firefighter.

A spokesperson for the Public Safety Department would not comment further on the investigation, but a source says in the original post, the impostor was claiming to be a battalion chief, that he was injured and then demoted, and now is sick with cancer.
