Boy, is it hot in here! As is becoming something of a tradition among the fire and rescue departments around the world, a group of Chinese firemen have decided bare their buff bodies for a photo calendar.
According to the China Daily, the photos of the firemen posing for the 2017 Chinese Firefighters' Calendar have gone viral.
"The photo shoot featuring the firefighters' firm eyes and muscular bodies are a testimony to the strength of China's search and rescue forces, providing Chinese people with a stronger sense of security," they said.
And the sizzling calendar delivers, featuring images of muscular, topless firemen posing with their dogs, fire engines and with fire axes among other firefighting paraphernalia.
Chinese firemen heat up 2017 with calendar
What is a definite theme across the pictures is the unbridled display of six-packs and glistening biceps.
The Chinese calendar comes about the same time that Malaysia's own Fire and Rescue Department released its 2017 calendar that displayed slightly more realistic depictions of firemen carrying out their duties.
Three months before that, the Australian Firefighter's 2017 calendar was made available for sale and included images of topless Australian firemen posing with hoses, tools and puppies.
