KANKAKEE — One of the allegations in a federal lawsuit against Kankakee is that the fire department tried to cover up an alleged incident in which a male firefighter attacked a female colleague during a fatal fire.

Fire Chief Damon Schuldt gave Lt. Nathan Boyce a one-day suspension for physically assaulting and pushing Lt. Michelle Giese during an Oct. 18 fatal fire at 155 W. Mertens St., according to city documents. This occurred near where two victims were being rescued from a second floor apartment. An elderly woman died as a result of the blaze.
