Knoxville Fire Department Under Investigation for Hazing

The Knoxville Fire Department is conducting an Internal Affairs investigation of hazing practices at its training center. Investigators are looking into allegations that recent KFD rookies were forced to "buzz" like bumblebees, walk like ducks and pick up cigarette butts as part of their "training." The Knoxville Firefighters Association requested the investigation, which got under way last week.
