Durham firefighters will not face charges


Although the Durham County Sheriff's Office confirmed the Lebanon volunteer firefighters consumed alcohol, a lack of evidence will keep them from charging the firefighters.

North Carolina state law requires a blood-alcohol test to determine if a person has been drinking. No tests were given to the firefighters.

Several firefighters were disciplined for the December 15 incident. One was forced to step down.
