MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- Equipment purchases have come under scrutiny as officials investigate spending in the Mahopac Volunteer Fire Department, according to a report in Lohud.com.

Specifically, federal investigators, prompted by questions raised through audits submitted to the Carmel Town Board, are looking at whether the $1.4 million spent on equipment from 2012-14 was really spent on equipment, said Lohud.com.

Leaders in Carmel, which are served by three other fire departments, are also looking at spending in those departments as they negotiate new contracts for fire service, according to Lohud.com.
