Two male firefighters from Prince George’s County have been charged criminally following an altercation with two female firefighters at the scene of a working fire earlier this week.
Jeff Miller and Christopher Kelly, both of the West Lanham Hills Volunteer Fire Department, have been charged with assault and obstructing firefighters. The fire occurred on Tuesday, December 15, 2015. The female firefighters were career personnel assigned to a different fire station. One of the women was a lieutenant.
The altercation occurred as the career personnel were attempting to stretch an attack line into the structure and the volunteers were attempting to stop them. All four members have been placed on administrative leave from Prince George’s County Fire & EMS pending a further investigation.
