The Los Angeles County Black Employees Assn. on Wednesday called for the firing of a county Fire Department captain who they said harassed African-American employees and, in one instance, donned a simulated Ku Klux Klan mask in front of workers. Officials of the association and dispatchers with the Fire Department said Capt. Michael Lee repeatedly made racial slurs and offending remarks to employees at the dispatch center, which is located at the department's East Los Angeles headquarters.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department announced Thursday that a four-month investigation had cleared two veteran white officers accused by the County Black Employees Assn. of racial harassment. The department said investigators had determined that the actions of a fire captain and a battalion chief in separate incidents involving two black women dispatchers last November were "not racially motivated."

Nearly one-third of Los Angeles County Fire Department's 170 black firefighters have quit their union to protest its gesture of support for a white fire captain accused of wearing a simulated Ku Klux Klan hood in front of workers. The resignations of union memberships by 53 firefighters is the latest episode in a troubled history between the Fire Department and its black firefighters, who have complained for years of prejudicial promotional practices.
