The company wrote on Facebook, "We have identified three participants in this abhorrent event and their employment has been terminated."

It added, "Bigge expects its employees and contractors to work with the utmost integrity and professionalism."

The statement continued,

The behaviour of these individuals is not consistent with our company values and ethical code. 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 three individuals.
