(CNN) — Detroit Fire Commissioner Eric Jones said there will be an investigation into a photo of fire crews posing in front of a burning house.
“There are a lot of ways to celebrate a retirement. Taking a photo in front of a building fire is not one of them,” Jones said in a statement provided to CNN.READ MORE: Tenants Fed Up Over No Heat & Hot Water At The Sapphire Apartments, Management Responds
The photo was originally posted on the Detroit Fire Incidents page on New Year’s Eve, according to local news.
It was captioned “Crews take a moment to get a selfie on New Years!” but there is no indication of when the photo was taken.READ MORE: Oxford School Superintendent Addresses Claims Related To High School Shooting
The photo was later removed from the Detroit Fire Incidents Facebook page after receiving messages from firefighters worried about their jobs.
Detroit Fire confirmed that the house seen ablaze in the photo was vacant at the time, as was the building next to it, according to the outlet.
If the photo is verified, disciplinary action will follow, Jones said in the statement.MORE NEWS: Detroit Man Charged After Setting Pregnant Girlfriend On Fire
