LEONIA - Leonia has reinstated its volunteer fire department days after suspending it because a teen was accused of molesting a firefighter's 3-year-old son behind a fire truck.
Firefighters will be allowed to respond to emergencies and to maintain equipment. Only firefighters will be allowed in the firehouse.
The Teaneck and Fort Lee fire departments responded to calls after the 115-year-old department was closed on Monday.
Fire officials are awaiting a report from the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office to decide if any changes need to be made in the department's policies.
Police have accused 18-year-old Darius Levine of inappropriately touching the son of a firefighter. Firefighters allowed Levine, who has developmental disabilities, to spend time at the firehouse.
