Anne Arundel County police are investigating allegations that three volunteer firefighters at the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company sexually assaulted another volunteer last week.
Sgt. Jeff Kelly, a county police spokesman, said the probe by county police and the state's attorney's office is in its preliminary stages.
"All we're saying right now is that we have received the complaint, and we're investigating the allegations," Sergeant Kelly said.
The three volunteer firefighters reportedly were dismissed after an internal probe of allegations that a male volunteer who is not a firefighter was abused.
