A video shot in Oroville of a man getting angry at firefighters for driving to the Food Maxx while on the clock has gone viral.

The cell phone video, which has garnered more than 2 million views and 40,000 shares on Youtube, shows a man telling Butte County Fire Fighters they are wasting tax payer money by driving to the grocery store in a firetruck.

The man tells firefighters they should be shopping at the Wagon Wheel, closer to Station 64 in Kelly Ridge.

As the confrontation is happening, the man shooting the video sticks up for the firefighters, who continued to politely load their groceries into the truck.

Cal Fire officials say the man has yet to file a formal complaint with the department.

You can watch the video below, but beware it does contain some strong language.
