NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Eight firefighters including a lieutenant are on 30 day suspensions after a big brawl at Billy's Bar across from Yankee Stadium last week, sources tell 1010 WINS.

The suspensions come without pay which is the maximum punishment allowable.

The fight happened after the FDNY medal ceremony.

One firefighter yelled a racial slur at another firefighter and things went south from there, sources say.

A source also said the NYPD is investigating because the officers who responded didn't make any arrests. Some, who were allegedly drunk, apparently drove themselves home.

Internal Affairs is looking into the incident.
