Woman Fired From McDonald's After Feeding Fire Fighters

Posted: Updated:
OLEAN, NY -

A New York woman does a good deed and gets fired for it.

Heather Levia, a manager at McDonald's, paid for breakfast for fire fighters battling a house fire in sub-zero temperatures.

Moments later, another fire department ordered breakfast. When she asked her company to pay it, they denied it.

Therefore, she and her co-workers coughed up the dough. Now, she's out of a job. She's been working at McDonald's for eight years.

Her company says it's not because she paid for the food. It's because they say she swore at a supervisor.

"It's just wrong. Like, I wish the communities would change and help each other out. I wish that things didn't have to be the way they are. And if losing my job is going to speak out to the community, then that's what it's going to do," Levia told reporters. "I appreciate everything that they do."

One of the firefighter companies she paid for is also sad for Heather.

"It was a shock. We certainly regret the fact she lost her job," said Gorden Scott, an Allegany Fire Media Officer.

Heather's unfortunate situation is turning around though. The 23-year-old mother of twins has been offered several jobs. She's currently going to nursing school, so she'll be able to pay for herself again.
