A Bronx firehouse is feeling the heat after officials discovered an image of President Obama was painted on a toolbox – and then defaced with the word “hustler.”

An iconic picture of the President above the word “BELIEVE” appears to have been stenciled on a large toolbox visible inside Engine 45, Ladder 58 in East Tremont.

Right across Obama’s face is the word “HUSTLER” in big red letters.

And underneath the image, someone scrawled “Allah Akbar” – “God is great” in Arabic – in black ink.

Lt. Kenneth Durante refused to comment on the images when questioned at the firehouse Monday.

FDNY officials said last night they launched an internal probe after the Daily News brought the images to their attention.
