MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – Milwaukee's fire chief made his first public comments on Thursday about the suspension of nine firefighters accused of damaging their own fire station.
Chief Mark Rohlfing spoke outside at a Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission meeting and expressed disgust over the incident.
Rohlfing declined to talk specifically about the incident, which has nine firefighters on administrative leave. However, he did say the vast majority of the fire department employees work hard to serve the public and it's disappointing that a few firefighters would give the group a "black eye."
According to our affiliate in Milwaukee, WISN-TV, the suspensions weren't on the commission's agenda.
