A fire station that got in trouble last year for allowing a porn to be filmed at their fire house is in trouble again, once more because of some pot-stirring girls.

Venice Fire Station 63 reportedly allowed a burlesque dancing hula hooper to come into their station, put on their gear, and dance around their pole whilst hooping. The girl is a representative for the Venice-based hula hopping class Hoopnotica, and she was out trying to promote the company.

According to NBC Los Angeles, a spokeswoman for Hoopnotica said that the girl in the video wasn't trying to get anyone in trouble.

“We were walking around the neighborhood,” Brand said. “The girls saw the door of the station open and walked in...It was totally spur of the moment...It was all lighthearted fun. I hope we didn’t get anyone in trouble. It was just clean, American fun.”

Even so, a spokesperson for the LAFD reportedly told NBC LA that they were launching an internal investigation into the video. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is the short film getting everyone in hot water. It's actually not that racy.
