A fire chief lost his job and his family after he was busted having sex with a teenage girl in his car.

The volunteer fire chief in Pennsylvania was arrested after police said he was caught having sex with the teenager in the back seat of his car.

Police said 46-year-old Aaron Powell was found with the 17-year-old girl in the back of a Dodge Charger that was parked in the McKee’s Point Marina parking lot in McKeesport.

Powell told officers that he knew the teenager for more than two years.

He was charged with corruption of minors and open lewdness.

Powell was also immediately fired from the Versailles Volunteer Fire Company.

Annie Clawson, who was Powell’s girlfriend for 13 years, said that she was shocked by the accusations and she is now struggling to come to terms with his betrayal.

Clawson, who has two teenage daughters, broke up with Powell after learning about the reason behind his arrest.

“I just want to say to him, I hope it was all worth it,” Clawson said.

Clawson and her two daughters are also part of the Versailles Volunteer Fire Company.

The fire department wrote a statement on their Facebook page which reads: “In light of the recent allegations the Versailles Volunteer Fire Company must inform you that as of this morning, the fire chief who has been accused of illegal actions, was removed from office and is no longer affiliated with the department.

“The assistant chief will take over until the new year. In no way does the recent events reflect what the Versailles Fire Company and its members stand for.

“Any actions by any member outside of the company has nothing to do with the operations of the company. We will be moving forward and continue to serve the Boro of Versailles and surrounding communities.”
