Christmas with San Diego firefighters on the job

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There is one profession that never takes a holiday, especially on this Christmas Day. These men and women work around the clock and usually have to celebrate the holidays at work.

They work 24/7, 365 days a week but one day a year, the firefighters at Station 10 get to play host.

For retired firefighter Vic Reed, it is a jog down memory lane.

Reed remembers bringing his own sons, one of them now a firefighter, to the station on Christmas Day.

But on this Christmas, just a day after two volunteer firefighters were killed in New York, Battalion Chief Mitchell says it puts things in perspective.

Hearts are heavy but comforted by loved ones who came to pay a visit. 

Battalion Chief Mitchell says the upside to working on Christmas Day is that there is always plenty of food and dessert.
