Los Angeles City Firefighters involved in providing fire trucks for two adult films will not face disciplinary action, according to an investigation ordered by Fire Chief Brian Cummings.

Why not? Well, the films, in which adult performer Charley Chase flashes her goodies in the vicinity of L.A. City Fire trucks, were made in or before 2008, and the city's charter stipulates it's been too long to take action. "The charter prevents the Fire Department from disciplining any member for actions that are more than two years old," explains the L.A. Times, citing a letter from Cummings to City Councilman Dennis Zine.

In the films, Engine 263 from Firehouse 63 in Venice, and Engine 41 from Firehouse 41 in Hollywood, are used and referenced.

In his letter to Zine, Cummings said the LAFD would complete the investigation, and "review its policies, procedures, and practices to ensure that this type of conduct will not occur again."
