Four D.C. Firefighters Accused Of Sexual Assault

Four D.C. firefighters are being investigated for an alleged sexual assault of a female firefighter at a D.C. fire station.

The incident allegedly took place early last Friday at the DC fire station at 2200 M Street, Northwest.  The female firefighter told fire officials she was asleep inside the station, but awakened when someone touched her thigh.

"Early indications is that, the female firefighter was, uncomfortable in the situation in which she was in. She made allegations that we took seriously and reported it," says Tim Wilson, the Department's official spokesperson.

Wilson says fire officials put the four firefighters on administrative duty, meaning they don't report to their regular station or have contact with the public and the department is cooperating in the investigation.

The firefighters' union is urging both police and the department to conduct a thorough and fair investigation.
