A Florida firefighter is taking some heat for fighting fires while off-duty.

Polk County firefighter and union president Jay Schwartz is under investigation after fighting a house fire while off-duty on April 4.

To make matters worse, Schwartz was caught on film while he battled the fire, sans protective gear.

According to Fox13, the fire was allegedly started by local resident Charles Wayne and has left twelve people homeless.

Wayne has since been charged with arson.
