We are still waiting on an incident report on what the firefighter reported. But Channel 9 has obtained a letter Lateef Williams’ supervisor wrote to the Orlando Fire administration last Tuesday.
According to the letter, there was a conflict between Williams and another firefighter at Station 9 on Saturday, Sept. 16.
The supervisor wrote in the letter that the event has “created an environment that makes myself and other crew members feel unsafe in the work environment.”
The lieutenant goes on to say that this is the first time in his 10-year career that he has ever felt concerned for his safety at work and that he was no longer comfortable working with or around Williams.
Williams’ supervisor said that in the past, Williams made “questionable and irrational statements” but made it seem like it was a joke.
The supervisor went on to write that it is evident that Williams cannot be trusted and his actions cannot be predicted at this time.
Williams has worked for the fire department since at least December 2020.
The union representing Orlando firefighters confirms Williams is on administrative leave.
The Orlando Fire Department said they would not comment because it is an active criminal investigation.
