This Is The Photo That Might Get One Firefighter Terminated (PHOTOS)

An unidentified firefighter in Las Cruces, NM could have a little time on his hands in the near future. According to KFOX 14, the firefighter is facing discipline up to unpaid leave, and it all stems from a photograph of his wife and child.

The firefighter’s wife was photographed by El Paso photographer Tara Ruby while breast-feeding the couple’s child. The problem for the firefighter stems from the fact that his wife was wearing his uniform in the photo, and the Las Cruces Fire Department is not pleased. The photographer has tried to shed a little light on the matter.

“The intention has been since the very beginning to show that a mom can be a full-time mom and still work a full-time job and do both equally at the same time. I was mad for the mom and the husband she has that's supporting her in this. It was never intended to be anything negative. It's only you know supposed to be positive," explained Ruby.

The fire department’s investigation is ongoing and no penalty has been handed out as of yet.
