The Seattle Fire Department is looking into an embarrassing picture that was posted on Facebook. Is it conduct unbecoming a firefighter? KING 5's Linda Brill takes a look.
The photo was sent by a KING 5 viewer, who called the image unprofessional. It appears to be a Seattle Fire Department lieutenant on the station house floor, tagged with paint. The tags said "Ladder 10," "E 25" (for Engine 25) and "B 2" (for Battalion 2).
We believe a fellow firefighter posted it and other firefighters "liked it" on Facebook. But firefighters from his Ladder 10 truck had nothing to say about it.
The Seattle Fire Department said they were not aware of the incident and they are investigating.
The photo, which has since been removed from Facebook, said it was the lieutenant's last day at Station 25 - with an embarrassing send-off.
