Fire fighters have a reputation for being attractive - but usually it is assumed that it is a masculine kind of hotness.

Gunn Narten, a Norwegian fire fighter from Stavanger, has over 120,000 followers on Instagram and regularly posts about her work.

In 2011, just 3.7 per cent of fire fighters in Norway were female.

Many of her posts encourage more women to join the service.

In addition to fire fighting, Narten is a personal trainer.

According to Sputnik News, she decided to become a fire fighted aged 19.

She told Sputnik

The men I work with treat me like they treat any other colleague. I would say it doesn't matter if you are a male or a female.

We go through the same physical tests to get the job. Of course, a woman can never be as strong as a man, but there is so much more to the profession than raw strength.

How you solve a problem, how you work in a team and the ability to improvise, for example.

In addition to personal training and putting out burning buildings, Narten does occasional modelling work.

Hot members of the emergency services are nothing new.

In mid August ABC News reported on Constable Mason, of the Brisbane Police went viral after he snapped a selfie on a missing phone he had recovered.
