Philipp Tanzer, known to millions of gay porn fans as Logan McCree, has joined a Scottish firefighting unit in the sparsely populated coastal town of Durness in northern Scotland, and the biggest news may be how little news it is to his neighbors.

According to The Sun, “Fire colleague James Keith, 49, also a bar and caravan park owner, said the adult star had been welcomed by villagers. James joked: “I’m one of his work mates — but not in a film capacity obviously. We asked him because he’s a young fit bloke. We need young fit men or women. None of us have a problem with his past.”

McCree, who hails from Dresden, Germany, started out in the limelight after capturing Germany’s Mr. Leather award in 2004. Three years later he starred in Ink Storm, a gay porn flick which took home the award for ‘Best Fetish Video’ at the widely-respected industry awards program, The Grabby’s. That same year he wrote the screenplay for The Drifter (where he met his long distance boyfriend, fellow gay porn actor Vinnie D’Angelo). The film took several awards in 2009 including ‘Best Movie,’ ‘Best Due Sex Scene,’ and ‘Best Actor.’

In 2011, when the issue of gay-for-pay had become a point of heated discussion in the gay adult industry, Tanzer announced he was bisexual and had a girlfriend. Reportedly, this caused something of brouhaha among his many gay fans.

None of this, however, seems to matter to the residents of Durness where Tanzer now lives as the owner/operator of a massage parlor/hair salon. “Everyone in Durness has heard about it. But I really try and help in the community as much as I can and people are very grateful. They needed fresh blood and I was willing to help,” the tattooed star told The Sun.

Philipp admits a few locals moaned to fire chiefs about whether he was right for the £4,000-a-year role ($5750). But he added: “If they have a problem with it they can always come to me. I’m a friendly person. “I’m young and fit and I was a soldier for three years. I was a medic so that helps. I read superhero comics since I was a kid so I have to help people when I can.”

As for Keith and the rest of his firefighting crew? “We would all have preferred it if he was a female porn actress. But he is what he is.”
