Dallas firefighter helmet cam controversy

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Helmet cam video from a Dallas firefighter made its way on YouTube, and sources say the Dallas Fire Chief isn't happy about it.

The four-minute video shows a firefighter from station 5, fighting flames with his team at a Pleasant Grove home.

Videos like this one are often used for training. The firefighter posted this one on YouTube.

Administration sources told FOX 4 the Chief is angry about the video being taken and posted. The source stopped short of calling it an official "investigation," but did say it is being looked into.

It's unclear if Dallas Fire Rescue has a policy regarding helmet cam video. It's also unclear who the camera belongs to and who, if anyone, sanctioned the video's posting.

DFR refused to comment on the video or a possible investigation.
