A picture of a California firefighter taking a break from battling a blaze in San Diego County has gone viral.
San Marcos firefighter Tim Bergon took the quick selfie to let his wife know he was okay, but it quickly spread to thousands over social media after the owners of "Plan 9 Alehouse" posted the selfie on their Facebook page to say thank you.
"It touched us, so we passed it on," the Alehouse owners, who are friends with the firefighter and his family, said.
In the photo, you see the father of three young kids sharing a smile with his family as he takes a much needed break surrounded by fellow firefighters resting on dry grass, even concrete and this one on top of a utility box.
Within a matter of hours the photo went viral receiving more than 30,000 likes on Plan 9 Alehouse's Facebook page alone but was shared and seen by thousands more on social media
