Las Vegas Fire and Rescue is conducting an internal investigation on Thursday into claims that an unauthorized person spent time in a fire station.
The fire chief released a statement saying the allegations are being taken very seriously following a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal on accusations of an incident involving the person and a firefighter.
Fire Chief William McDonald's statement is as follows:
We are currently conducting an active investigation into a complaint of an unauthorized visit by a civilian to one of our fire stations. We take allegations of this type very seriously and are looking into it thoroughly. As I stated back in May, there is zero tolerance in the Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Department for unauthorized visits or inappropriate behavior within our fire stations.
Earlier this year, a fire captain was arrested on child sex charges after allegedly having sex in a fire station with a prostitute who was underage.
