A memo released Wednesday shows that two Kokomo firefighters engaged in a physical altercation last month over a city contract proposal that was rejected by the local fire union. The fight, which led to both firefighters receiving written reprimands, came just one day after a rally at City Hall attended by roughly 200 people in support of the Professional Firefighters of Kokomo Local 396. The memo reveals, though, that the friction between city and union officials displayed at the rally and a subsequent Common Council meeting has now also stretched into Local 396’s inner ranks.
