This Is What Heroism Looks Like: California Firefighters Go Viral in Unbelievable Photo

Share

California’s Carr wildfire continues to rage out of control, and tragically, the death toll continues to rise.

With off-the-charts temperatures, dry air, and gusting winds, the fire nearly doubled in size by Saturday.

Sunday morning reports reveal the fire grew another 6 percent overnight to 89,194 acres, with 5 percent currently contained.

The fire is said to have started as a result of a car malfunctioning.

The Redding Searchlight reports this frightening wildfire has forced nearly 40,000 residents in the area to evacuate their homes, leaving many wondering if they’ll ever be able to return at all.

But it is while these residents evacuate that close to 4,000 brave men and women of the surrounding fire departments have sprung into action.

Countless firefighters have been working around the clock to keep the fire from claiming more land and lives.

A recent photo going viral proves just how heroic these firefighters are in such a time of crisis.

In an image posted to twitter by photojournalist Douglas MacDonald, a group of firefighters are captured sleeping in the yard of a home they saved from a fire the previous night.

“This photo should be on the front page of every paper in the country,” MacDonald tweeted.

“Fire fighters curled up on the ground in the back yard of the house they just saved the night before, resting up for the next shift in their battle with the [Carr Fire].”

These men and women, along with thousands of other firefighters, first responders, and more who are working to contain the Carr Fire are true heroes.

Their bravery and dedication is inspiring.

Ready to jump back into their battle at a moment’s notice, it’s people like this that keep our faith in humanity alive.
