The United States has sent 160 firefighters to help fight the devastating fires in Australia. Another 100 will arrive over the next week and many of those will be from California. When American firefighters landed at Sydney’s International Airport on Thursday travelers clapped and cheered. A heroes welcome.
US fire fighters arrived at Sydney Int Airport this week, on their way to assist with fire fighting in Victoria.
Coming through, all gathered gave a spontaneous & lengthy round of applause, reflecting the gratitude & admiration we all have for their generosity. #NSWRFS @NSWRFS pic.twitter.com/5epg5y4qxX
