Workers Hired to Clean Up Wildfire Debris Lose Their Jobs Over Offensive Photos
Three workers appeared to poke fun at the tragic scenes following the destructive Camp Fire.
Three men who were hired to clean up properties following the deadly Camp Fire in California have been fired after posing for tasteless photos amid the debris.
In the photos, which were posted to the Facebook page of the Town of Paradise, one worker straddled a firetruck-shaped mailbox with the caption: “I got to ride a fire truck today.”
In another photo, two workers pretend to be driving a burned out RV.
“They're off on a fun filled vacation to unknown destinations,” was another caption.
In one particularly sickening photo, a beer bottle had been place beside the charred remains of a house cat. It had the caption: "Dude … I was just chilling with my homies, having a couple of cold ones, and BAM… damn fire breaks out."
The Town of Paradise wrote on its Facebook page: "This is unacceptable and reprehensible behavior."
The company that employed the three men seen in photos said it has fired them, calling the incident "abhorrent."
The Camp Fire killed 86 people and wiped out the town of Paradise.
