EVERETT — An Everett firefighter has been placed on paid leave while police investigate whether he was selling antiques taken from a burned-out building.

City spokeswoman Kate Reardon told The Daily Herald the firefighter’s leave is taking effect Tuesday.

The owner of a store damaged in a November fire, Sue Ludwig of The Spare Room Vintage Flea Market, told police items from her condemned store showed up on Craigslist.
