CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Assistant fire chief has been placed on paid leave after allegedly being under the influence during work hours.

Robert Kuhn was placed on paid leave Friday for six to eight weeks after the fire department received an anonymous complaint alleging Kuhn of being under the influence of alcohol during work hours on July 3, according to a memo sent by City Manager Harry Black.

In the interim, District Chief Fred Rather will oversee the duties of the Fire Prevention Bureau.

The investigation is under review by the law department.
