CLEVELAND -- Cleveland City Councilman Jeff Johnson says he has heard from insiders in the city's fire department that supervisers and battalion chiefs may have been paid for work they never did, in addition to some firefighters.

Johnson called for "heads to roll" if, in fact, that's the case.

Internal auditors are now looking at who was responsible for allowing firefighters to get paid hundreds of hours for work they never did.

Cleveland Safety Director Marty Flask has assured council that individuals will be held accountable. He vows to take disciplinary action at the very least, and doesn't rule out criminal prosecution, pending the outcome of a police internal affairs investigation.
