Albany -- An Albany firefighter is fired and will now be arrested for threatening another firefighter with a knife.
31 year old Rico Cody worked at Albany Fire Station Nine on Antioch Road.
Police say he got mad Thursday because another fireman used his gear and didn't clean it. Investigators say Cody began yelling at the co-worker and pulled a knife while making threats.
Albany Fire Chief James Arrowood said "We absolutely can't have one person intimidating, threatening, or harassing another one on the job."
Cody, who has been with the department six years, has ten days to appeal his firing.
