Washington Fire Captain Fired Over Religious Emails

The Spokane Valley Fire Department has fired a captain who continued to send religious emails from his department account despite numerous orders to stop, reports the Associated Press.

Capt. Jon Sprague, who runs the Spokane County Christian Firefighter Fellowship, has been disciplined several times for sending the emails. This year, he received two letters of reprimand and a suspension before the Spokane Valley Board of Fire Commissioners voted unanimously to fire him.

Sprague sent emails to a group of firefighters who agreed to receive the notices. They contained information about upcoming meetings and events of the Christian fellowship group.
