Fight Allegedly Erupts Among Firefighters At Maryland Blaze – News:
9 News has learned an investigation is underway into why Prince George’s County Firefighters were fighting more than fires early Monday morning.

Departmental reports obtained by 9 News include claims by two career firefighters that someone deliberately shut off their air tanks and ripped off some of their protective gear while they fought the house fire on Standish Drive in Landover Hills.

The two firefighters, assigned to the Landover Hills station, received first and second degree burns. The reports claim that firefighters from the all-volunteer Kentland Station got into a battle over who was going to put out the fire.(Read More)

This is an unfortunate incident. I know of a lot of volunteers who look up to this company as an elite force. We will have to wait for the investigation to be completed to know what happened. However, there is no place for this behavior in the fire service. Period.
