    Two South Texas firefighters have been dismissed after photos of nude men were displayed at a fire station.

    The Victoria Advocate, through an open records request, obtained copies of the montage of about 10 photos after the city announced the firings Wednesday.

    The newspaper reported Friday that the racy photos, including men in sexually provocative poses, were displayed at Victoria Fire Station No. 2.

    A complaint was filed with the city last month. The city has declined to release the names of the male firefighters who've been fired. City spokesman O.C. Garza declined comment.

    A statement from Victoria, a city of about 63,000 located 110 miles southwest of Houston, says conduct that interferes with operations, discredits the city or is offensive to customers or fellow employees will not be tolerated.
