A group of firefighters were arrested for gang raping a girl after they shared the video of the action with friends on Snapchat.

Six volunteer firefighters in Virginia, including the fire chief and fire captain, were arrested after police were alerted to the video, showing the men gang raping the teenage girl.

According to police, the 17-year-old girl was highly intoxicated when she was gang raped.

The teenager voluntarily met with the firefighters from the Strasburg Fire Department but she claims she was intimidated by all of the suspects into having sex with them.

Police said that the video shows them having sex with the girl while she was passed out at 3 different locations including a hotel and the firehouse.

Authorities have identified the suspects as Fire Chief Dale King, 36, Fire Captain Christopher Pangle, 32, Nathan Hirschberg, 26, Fabian Sosa, 25, Andrew Key, 24, and Bradly Marlin, 21.

They all face charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. If convicted of the charges, they can each face up to 12 months in jail and $2,500 in fines.
