According to Chicago Sun-Times reporter Fran Spielman, one Chicago firefighter’s romp in the firehouse is causing him and a bunch of fellow firefighters who looked the other way some trouble. The firehouse involved has not been identified publicly by the Chicago Fire Department.
The investigation was sparked by the firefighter’s ex-girlfriend who reported the couple had sex in a firehouse. The firefighters, according to the article is likely to get a lengthy suspension or be fired for his actions.
The other firefighters, some of whom have already retired, stand accused of “varying degrees of not paying attention or looking the other way,” sources said. They either knew or should have known that the hanky-panky was going on.
“The Chicago Fire Department does not tolerate any conduct unbecoming on its long tradition of valor and professionalism,” Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford was quoted as saying in an emailed statement.
To verify the woman’s claims, Internal Affairs interviewed nearly two dozen firefighters and went through telephone and text messages provided by the woman.
Firehouse sex is strictly off-limits. In addition, no visitors are allowed in Chicago firehouses after 10 p.m.
