The Dragon Who Bit The Firefighter

A Fullerton firefighter battles a 3 alarm fire in an apartment complex when the fire dragon seen in the photo burst through the rooftop, causing second-degree burns to the fireman's shoulder. The fire forced firefighters from interior firefighting to external, as roofs and stairways became compromised. It also displaced an estimated 40 people and will cost approximately $500,000 in property damage.
