A Pittsburgh firefighter was suspended on Wednesday after being accused of sexually assaulting a child.

Martin Flora, 48, was suspended by Public Safety Director Michael Huss, fire Chief Darryl E. Jones said.

Flora was arraigned early Wednesday on charges including indecent assault, aggravated assault against a person less than 13 years of age, unlawful contact with a minor, endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors, state court documents show.

Some of the charges, filed by city police, stem from January 1996 and others from December.

Flora, who worked out of Station 29 in Westwood, was lodged in the Allegheny County Jail because he couldn't post $200,000 bail, court records show. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Feb. 15.

Flora faces a trial board hearing on his suspension, Jones said.
