Feds Investigate Fire Departments

JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating the Johnston and Grimes fire departments.
   Fire Chief Jim Krohse oversees both departments, he says the investigation seems to be centered on firefighters who have full-time jobs with one department who also work paid on-call shifts for the other city's department.
   Johnston and Grimes share Krohse's services, and firefighters from both communities staff a joint fire station that responds to calls in both communities.
   Grimes City Administrator Kelley Brown says questions asked during the federal investigators' visit to Grimes indicated that the Labor Department will likely consider whether the Johnston and Grimes fire departments should be seen as a single employer or as two separate entities.
   Labor Department officials didn't return a call.
