AKRON, OH (WOIO) - An Akron firefighter retired Friday amid a porn scandal.

Deann Eller sent the retirement letter on June 22.

The city of Akron also released a statement on Friday:

"Arthur (Art) Dean has agreed to discipline for conduct unbecoming of a member of the Akron Fire Department.  Dean, who will remain on unpaid suspension pending final disciplinary action, is not eligible for continued service with the Akron Fire Department.  Deann Eller has voluntarily resigned/retired from the City of Akron, effective immediately.  The City has no other information to provide, as no disciplinary charges had been issued at the time of her voluntary resignation/retirement."

According to Chief Tucker, the station received an anonymous tip that the pornographic material was online.
