Outrage Grows Over Rap Video Shot At Willow Oak Firehouse

YOLO COUNTY (CBS13) — Outrage is growing over a video showing a local firefighter taking part in a racy rap video that was made on the taxpayers’ dime.

Assistant Yolo County counsel Dan Cederborg tells CBS13 he doesn’t think the music video that a Willow Oak fire captain performed in while on duty, using the district’s equipment and building without county approval is a big deal.

He refused to comment on camera on the incident.

The firefighter, known as Captain Marcus, recently teamed up with local rapper Ninevah to produce the song “Fire in the Sky.”

Initially, Marcus tried to dodge our cameras, but later apologized for the video, saying he acted alone.

But Cederborg downplayed the captain’s actions, saying he only went down the street and didn’t spend that much time with the rapper.

Marcus’ boss, Fire Chief Kim Timothy wasn’t apologetic, but defensive, claiming the firefighters rights were violated by CBS13’s cameras.

“I don’t want to comment on it until we make a decision internally,” Timothy said.

County residents disagree with the attorney’s assessment.

“That property, all those fire trucks belong to all of us,” said resident Tim Hickerson.

At this point, we still don’t know if there will be any discipline.
