UPDATE:

Startling allegations out of Morgantown surfaced on Friday. An anonymous source claims firefighters have been watching pornography at the Northside Fire Station while they were on duty.

The allegations came in the form of a letter that was sent to Morgantown's Fire Department Chief and 5 News.

The author never identifies him or herself, but they claim that they work at that department.

According to the anonymous source, firefighters allegedly share porn sites from time to time at the firehouse to "break up the boredom between shifts".

Another allegation made in the letter claim one firefighter allegedly took nude pictures of a girlfriend's family member and then showed them to his co-workers.

Morgantown Fire Department Chief Mark Caravasos acknowledged he did receive a letter, but said he couldn't verify any of the content because of an ongoing investigation.

5 News spoke with Caravasos and he said, "Morgantown Police Internal Affairs and West Virginia State Police are investigating. Upon the conclusion of their investigation, what actions we take if any will depend on what the investigation reveals."

Stick with 5 News for the latest.

ORIGINAL STORY:
 
A Mon County fire station is under investigation after some city firefighters allegedly watched pornography on computers while on duty. 
 
According to a letter sent to Morgantown Fire Chief Mark Caravasos firefighters at the Northside Fire Station shared adult websites at the firehouse. 
 
Officials told the Dominion Post that public computers are monitored for attempted access to unauthorized sites.  If this incident occurred, it would have been done on private devices brought into the public facilities.
 
The Morgantown Police Department is handling that investigation. 
 
The fire department is withholding comment until investigation is complete.
