MIAMI (AP) - Miami authorities say they are scrutinizing a fire station where a noose hung over a black firefighter's family photo ruined by lewd drawings.

City officials fired six firefighters and up to five more could be suspended or demoted.

Termination letters sent to The Associated Press on Thursday said the fired firefighters helped or drew pictures of penises on personal photos of a colleague.
