JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania volunteer firefighter has been jailed on charges he repeatedly raped and molested a 6-year-old child between January 2014 and June 2015.

Cambria County detectives say the child was able to describe the incidents in detail against 21-year-old Josh Buchanan.

He faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 15 on charges including child rape and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

Detectives say Buchanan was a member of the Oakland Volunteer Fire Department in Stonycreek Township and with the fire police in the Richland Township Volunteer Fire Company.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Buchanan who has been unable to post $100,000 bond since his arrest on Friday.
