CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican reported that Massachusetts State Police are conducting a drug investigation.
Officials declined to name the firefighter who resigned.
City officials said they believe the accusation centers around drug possession, not drug sales.
At this point, they do not know what type of drugs were allegedly possessed.
