If Hollywood knows one thing about firefighters, it's this: They're all very, very hot. The latest evidence? NBC's "Chicago Fire," featuring men who face death with washboard abs and chiseled jaws.
But Taylor Kinney, Jesse Spencer and Charlie Barnett are hardly the first men to bring the heat to firefighting. They're the latest in a long, hot line. Feast your eyes on the firefighters of yore -- muscular men with hearts of gold and buns of steel, ready to strike sparks AND put out the resulting blaze.
