COLTON, CA (WCMH) — Firefighters are thanking an anonymous woman after she paid their dinner bill when they came in to eat from battling a large wildfire.

According to the City of Colton Fire Facebook page, several firefighters had gone to a Denny’s to eat after fighting the La Cedena fire in La Loma hills.
