California Firefighter Resigns Over Firehouse Sex

A firefighter in Petaluma, California, is out of a job over on-duty sex in a firehouse.  Public records show 28-year-old firefighter and paramedic Brett Hughes resigned in January after admitting to having consensual sex at least ten times with a woman who was not a fire department employee.  The "Press Democrat" says Hughes confessed to liaisons in the back of a fire engine, in a training room and in a captain's office.  The department's top two officials call the on-duty hanky panky a "gut check," a "black eye" and a "wakeup call," but insist it was an isolated incident.
