San Marcos, Calif. firefighter's selfie goes viral amid wildfires

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A San Marcos, Calif. firefighter's selfie has gone viral.

After eight massive wildfires and nearly 50 homes destroyed, firefighter Tim Bergon took the selfie to let his wife know he was okay. In it, the father of three is smiling as he and his fellow firefighters take a much-needed break.

The picture made it to Facebook -- and the selfie has taken on a whole new meaning.

"You see how exhausted they are," said Monica Calles, owner of Plan 9 Alehouse. "It just makes you really, really grateful for all they do, and they always do it."

The San Marcos fire is one of four blazes still burning. Early damage estimates have topped $20 million.
