Two Long Island police officers could face disciplinary actions after they were seen on video taking a selfie together in front of a burning house.
The officers were called to the New York suburb of Uniondale because of a house fire Thursday, according to the Nassau County Police Department. A video first published by NBC New York shows the two unnamed officers taking a picture while a fire engulfed the home behind them.
Police department officials did not take the video lightly.
“The contents of this video are very concerning to the department and are currently under investigation. If these officers are found to be in violation of any department rules and regulations, they will be appropriately disciplined,” Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said in a statement.
