A group of firefighters had just finished tackling the La Cadena Fire in La Loma Hills in Southern California when they headed to their local Denny’s restaurant for a meal. Little did they know, they wouldn’t be parting with any money on this particular occasion.
Twenty-five firefighters from Colton, San Bernardino County, had been fighting a vegetation fire which burned 70 acres on Saturday when they stopped for a hard-earned bite to eat.
But, while they were eating, an anonymous woman informed the restaurant staff that she wished to pay for the firefighters’ meals.
“This woman paid for the meal of all the firefighters at Denny’s at that time, plus tip for a total of $405; she also paid $100 for dessert for all of the crews,” read a post on the firefighters’ Facebook page.
The firefighters thanked the anonymous woman for her “generous show of support” in their Facebook post.
“We are honored to serve the citizens of our communities,” the post continued.
