Weary Firefighter Sends Wife Selfie From Wildfire To Let Her Know He's Safe
There are times to selfie, and there are times not to selfie. A firefighter battling a massive wildfire snapping a selfie to let his wife know he's doing okay is the former.San Marcos firefighter Tim Bergon's selfie shows him offering a tired smile while on a much-needed break, with other equally exhausted firefighters battling the Cocos Fire in San Diego in the background.
The photo was posted to Plan 9 Alehouse Escondido's Facebook page with the caption giving thanks to their hard work. The photo currently totally over 34,000 "likes", nearly 4,000 shares and plenty of thanks. Plan 9 gave away free food to firefighters last week while they battled the blaze. Today, Plan 9 set up a "Firefighter's Tab," where patrons can donate money that will pay for firefighter's food and drink at the establishment. "Now's your chance to buy a beer for a firefighter and personally thank them!" the post says.
The Cocos Fire spread to 2,000 acres, but is 89 percent contained, San Diego 6 reported this morning.
