PICTURES: Britain's hottest firefighter has temperatures rising
Smoking Charlotte Anderson is Britain's hottest firefighter - after reaching the finals of a body sculpture championships.
Sexy Charlotte, 26, wowed judges in the 'body fitness' category, where contestants are judged on their glamorous looks as well as their rippling muscles.
She reckons her gruelling training with Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service has helped hone her incredible physique.
"I am not scared of weights or sweating," said Charlotte, of Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

"There is plenty of time to look girly when I get dressed up and go out, but when I’m at the gym it’s the same as being at the fire ground, it’s both sweat and stamina."
Charlotte is a retained firefighter at Shepton Mallet fire station.
She won second place in the bodyfitness category at the South West Classic Bodybuilding and Open Championships last month and will now compete in the final in Harrogate on October 18.
"It’s called body fitness and the goal is for a more natural look to the muscles than bodybuilding," she said.
"Girls are expected to have pageant appearances, so they are marked on looks and hair as well as muscle tone and size.
"I have been on a pre-competition diet for the last four months which means eating every three hours with a strict exercise regime of at least three hours a day.
"Typically I work two muscle groups at a time in a four day split. I train by myself which is hard but push bigger weights every time.
"I am hoping to work up to the next class of physique but lean muscle will take years to obtain naturally but is worth the patience and dedication."
Single Charlotte started lifting weights when she joined the retained fire service three years ago.
"I wanted to keep up with the boys on the fire rounds," she said.
"It's not that I don't like asking for help - especially in a crucial situation - but I didn't want to be a girly-girl out on the fire calls."
Charlotte, who also has a full-time office job, added: "I get a lot of banter at the station about my competing.
"I took my trophy in and I think they are really pleased for me but they do make jokes about it - I think that just shows that they do support me though.
"They call me 'Guns' quite a lot and if something is really heavy they say 'don't worry we can get Guns on it'.
"But they are really supportive and put up with my mood swings which I get sometimes on the low carb parts of my diet.
"Being in the retained fire service is a really mix when it comes to helping my training.
"Sometimes we will be out on lots of jobs, which is great for fitness, but does make me tired when it comes to trying to fit in my personal fitness."
