A 22-year veteran Bridgeport firefighter accused of dumping poisonous acid onto his neighbor's water line has been fired.
Shelton police arrested Voccola, 52, on Sept. 5. Authorities said Voccola had ongoing problems with his neighbor and, at one point, poured poisonous and highly corrosive muriatic acid on his water supply fittings.
He was placed on paid administrative leave.
Voccola was charged with attempted criminal assault on a person over 60 and reckless endangerment. He is free on $25,000 bond.
