COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Top fire officials in Ohio’s capital city say they’re investigating unauthorized activities at a closed fire station amid reports that firefighters had a party there that included alcohol.

The Columbus Division of Fire says an investigation is under way about the use of the station, which was closed about a month ago and is being replaced.

Fire Chief Kevin O’Connor said in a statement Friday that if the rumors prove to be true, such actions wouldn’t be tolerated. In the meantime, one supervisor has been reassigned to a different unit.

The Columbus Dispatch reports firefighters weren’t permitted at the shuttered station, and alcohol isn’t allowed at such facilities. The newspaper says several firefighters said that windows were broken and city property was damaged.
