Camp Fire cleanup workers were fired for posting 'abhorrent' pictures online mocking the burned-out town of Paradise following the deadly blaze which killed 86.

The photos showed several workers on a burned-out property mocking the destruction they were being paid to clean up.

one photo, shared by the Town of Paradise Facebook page, a man was seen sitting on a mailbox shaped like a fire truck, alongside the caption: "I got to ride on a fire truck today."

One photo showed employees pretending to drive an RV, which was almost completely burned. Another photo, which appeared to show a dead cat with a bottle placed near its mouth, was captioned: "Dude... I was just chilling with my homies, having a couple of cold ones, and BAM... damn fire breaks out."

'We have identified three participants in this abhorrent event and their employment has been terminated, ' Bigge Crane and Rigging Co. posted on Facebook. 'Bigge expects its employees and contractors to work with the utmost integrity and professionalism.'

a Paradise city spokesperson said police are also looking into whether the photos show evidence of trespassing.

“We have identified three participants in this abhorrent event and their employment has been terminated,” Bigge Crane and Rigging said in a statement. The company is responsible for hiring the crew. “Bigge regrets that the residents of Paradise and Butte County have suffered an egregious insult during an already devastating time at the hands of these individuals.”
