California Firefighters Get Breakfast Burritos From Adorable 2-Year-Old Toddler
As the Carr Fire in Northern California continues to burn, residents have been flocking to help the firefighters and crews who were sent to contain the disaster.
According to Delish, not only celebrity chefs such as Guy Fieri and Jose Andres have stepped in to provide food, but some residents also offered meals to the firefighters and became an inspiration to others.
Chelsey Lutz posted a video on Facebook on July 30 of her 2-year-old daughter, Gracie, handing out burritos to firefighters, and it gained over 330,000 views and at least 5,300 shares.
The tin-foiled burritos were given out as part of warm breakfast made by Gracie’s grandmother for the firefighters as they were taking a break. In addition, two of Gracie’s uncles also joined to fight the fire.
People’s comments of appreciation and joy have flooded the post. One person wrote, “I do not know you but I just wanted to say thanks Chelsey. You couldn’t know how much we appreciate things like this. You and your daughter are truly good people.”
Another one wrote, “I don’t know you but this was awesome!! Great Job… those guys have it tough and I am sure your daughter helped to put a smile on their tired faces!! ”
The massive Carr Fire, which is considered the sixth most destructive fire in the state’s history, has so far taken away six people’s lives and destroyed more than 1,500 structures, according to ABC.
Currently, 35 percent of the fire is contained, with 126,000 acres burned.
