‘Firehouse Burlesque’ video filmed at LAFD station in Venice

LA Now

A Los Angeles Fire Department station embroiled in a porn video controversy last year has surfaced in another video showing a woman in shorts and high heels dancing inside the firehouse with a hula hoop and donning firefighter gear.

The video, titled ”Firehouse Burlesque Hula Hooping,” was shot at Fire Station 63 in Venice and published last week on YouTube by Hoopnotica, a Venice-based company that promotes using hula hoops for physical fitness.

The video begins by showing the woman’s bare legs in turnout pants as she pulls them up. Wearing a yellow firefighter helmet, shorts and red high heels, the woman dances with the hoop on the apparatus floor next to a fire engine.

At one point, a firefighter is seen prancing around with a hula hoop as two other firefighters watch.

A spokesman for Fire Chief Brian Cummings did not immediately respond Tuesday morning to an email request for comment. Lauren Brand, a spokeswoman for Hoopnotica, confirmed that the company posted the video. She was not directly involved in the filming but noted that company is just a few blocks from Fire Station 63.

[Updated 10:06 a.m.: The department's professional standards division has launched an investigation, said Battalion Chief Armando Hogan. He had no further comment.]

Last year, the LAFD launched an investigation after Station 63 and another firehouse allowed department fire engines to be used in porn shoots. In one video released in 2008, an actress climbed onto a fire engine at Venice Beach and exposed herself.

    I used to be a volunteer firefighter and there were times at stations other than mine (we were a pretty small town, not much going on) where I saw stuff that was more risqué than this.

    Looks like one of the firefighters got his girlfriend to wear her shorts and high heels so he could show her off to his buddies and video it. Big deal. She probably left after about 30 minutes and everyone went back to work.

    @Bad Brad
    I can’t be sure about that as her tassels hit about 120 RPM and everything went blank.
