The firefighter who was apparently caught on camera naked preparing food for a party in a firehouse has been placed on forced administrative leave. Forced leave means that he will not be paid, but can use vacation time that he has earned. The photo was supplied to News4 by a source who says complaints had been made by people who were at the station at the time. This engine company serves the Columbia Heights neighborhood. The D.C. Fire and EMS Department says there was a retirement celebration attended by off-duty firefighters there in July.
A source obtained the picture and gave it to News4, telling us that it's a naked firefighter at the stove.
The DC Fire and EMS Department says investigations are ongoing, but they do not believe there was alcohol in the station. They also say the man in the picture is the only person under investigation.
