    BENNINGTON - A Vermont fire department captain faces sexual assault charges involving a 13-year-old girl.

    Bryan Watson of the Bennington Rural Fire Department pleaded not guilty Monday in Bennington Superior Court.

    Police allege the 25-year-old Watson participated in sexual activities with the girl more than 10 times in the summer of 2011.

    The Bennington Banner reported Watson told police the girl used to visit him at home, but he denied any inappropriate contact.

    He's been released and faces a hearing on Dec. 27.

    Fire Chief Joseph Hayes said Watson is still a captain of the fire department he has served on about five years.
