The Houston Fire Department is still investigating how a sexually provocative video shoot was allowed to happen using city-owned fire trucks.
Now Mayor Sylvester Turner is joining the chorus of critics and promising accountability, too.
“That is totally unacceptable,” Mayor Turner said.
On Thursday afternoon, Mayor Turner reacted to what was filmed outside Station 46, one of Houston’s busiest fire stations. Firefighters are accused of allowing a local marketing company to shoot a racy video using HFD firetrucks as the backdrop.
“A formal investigation has been filed by Department Executives regarding the unsanctioned photoshoot in question. The extent of the disciplinary action will be determined at the conclusion of the investigation. These actions are not consistent with the core values of the department and its members,” the statement reads.
The videos in question are posted to the Instagram account “bookedbymolo” and have been viewed over 1,000 times. One of the two videos has been removed from Instagram as of early Wednesday afternoon.
