LAS VEGAS -- City officials say the Las Vegas Fire Department budget is burning a hole in taxpayers' pockets.

Any day now we expect to see the results of an independent study aimed at pointing out wasteful spending. City leaders tell News 3’s Mackenzie Warren the study will act as a guide on where the cuts will be.

Leaders say the Las Vegas Fire Department has been living beyond their means and the results of the study will eventually save taxpayer money.

One of the options: trimming a firefighters' shift from 24-hours to 12, but the union warns: that could come at a cost.
