By Associated Press

CANTON, Ga. (AP) Four Cherokee County firefighters have been fired amid allegations of misconduct.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports ( ) Capt. Chuck Foster, Capt. Mike Malone and firefighters Chad Huff and Brandon Wilson are appealing the decisions.

According to a report from the county attorney's office, an investigation started in October when a former firefighter accused Foster of sexual harassment. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained that report this week through an open records request.

The accuser - a woman - later came forward with other allegations, including a cellphone image of Huff and Wilson engaged in a lewd act. The photo had been sent to her to cheer her up after she was fired for failing a drug test.

Huff, Wilson and Malone said they weren't trying to offend anyone; they were simply having fun.
