Porn-star firefighter too hot for colleagues

Seventeen fire-fighters have quit their jobs because a female colleague discussed her pornography career while at work in the fire station.

Seventeen fire-fighters have quit their jobs because a female colleague discussed her pornography career while at work in the fire station.

It happened in Keyes, a town of 4,500 people south of Modesto in California, which is served by a small volunteer fire service.

The irate fire-fighters walked out, claiming that Alexa Jones had talked about pornography while at work with her husband – Assistant Fire Chief Roger Jones.

Captain Herb Collier, one of those who resigned, said: “We feel pretty strongly that there needs to be a separation between the pornography and the fire service.”

Alexa Jones has a website that promotes her pornographic material but does not mention her job as a firefighter.

She stars in videos under a pseudonym.

She said: “If they’re going to be out there, I might as well be making money off them.”

Her husband said: “It’s called freedom of expression, and speech also. It’s not illegal.”

The resignations leave Keyes with eight fire-fighters. Nearby stations have pledged to help the department respond to emergencies.
