HOUSTON —The Office of Inspector General is investigating alleged misconduct at a Houston fire station, fire officials confirmed on Thursday.
HFD sources told KHOU 11 News that the incident occurred last month at Fire Station 29. According to sources, it involved a firefighter who allegedly placed his privates or a sex object on the back and neck area of another firefighter.
Sources said the incident may have been intended as a prank, but it prompted an official complaint and an OIG investigation.

Justin ThielMonday, December 10, 2012 4:50:24 PMEvery fire dept in the nation should be under investigation then.. I can't count how many times we've pulled pranks and what not, especially on the rookies.. This is how it works (senior firefighter plays prank on rookie, rookie grows up into a senior firefighter and plays prank on a new rookie) it's the life cycle of the fire dept.
