An investigation was conducted after allegations that firefighters at a Monongalia County fire station watched pornography on computers while on duty.  According to Morgantown City manager Jeff Mikorski, that investigation wrapped up on December 18.

Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston told 5 News the investigation showed that accusations of any criminal activity taking place at the Northside Station were unfounded.

A few policy and personnel issues from the past were revealed, but the City Manager is saying no firefighters are in jeopardy of being fired or suspended by the city. Morgantown Police Internal Affairs conducted the investigation.

The accusations came in the form of an anonymous letter sent to 5 News. Whoever wrote it never identified him or herself, but claim they work at the department. The City Manager said the issues that were discovered happened a long time ago, and no action will be taken because they don't have all the details.

"During the internal investigation we found some issues with past infractions that were identified, but not to the extent that we could do anything with," said Mikorski.

Monday, Morgantown Fire Chief Mark Caravasos told us, "I have not reviewed a written brief on this issue yet. After the holidays it will be reviewed and I will have more information. Any actions taken will conform with City of Morgantown personnel rules and fire department regulations".
