LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A civil complaint was filed in court on Monday against the Camp Taylor Fire District and Deputy Chief Steve Adkins. Two firefighters, Michael Killebrew and George Givens, claim they’ve been subjected to a sexually hostile work environment.

They allege Adkins made sexually inappropriate and offensive comments on several occasions in front of others. They also made claims of physical harassment by Adkins including hitting, pushing and striking both men in the testicles. 

The plaintiffs are also suing the fire district claiming it failed to eliminate the harassment and prevent it.

Adkins had no comment while speaking with WHAS-11 over the phone.

The district and Adkins have 20 days to respond to the lawsuit after being served.
