A veteran Chicago firefighter has been fired for brazenly and repeatedly having sex with a woman at a South Side firehouse while colleagues allegedly looked the other way.

The first of several shoes to drop in the Chicago Fire Department's latest sex scandal targeted a firefighter assigned to Truck 24 on the Far South Side.

City Hall refused to identify the firefighter, but said his former girlfriend not only filed the complaint with the Fire Department's Bureau of Internal Affairs that triggered the investigation, but provided all of the supporting documents needed to nail the accused firefighter.

Sources said the woman provided text messages, emails and phone records that proved "she was where she said she was" and so was the firefighter. Armed with the evidence, Internal Affairs concluded that the firehouse was used as the scene of sexual trysts -- not once, but repeatedly over a long period of time.
