The horrific fires, which were caused partly by arsonists and the extreme drought, have been raging on for months—as of now not even half of them are contained.
“In an attempt to combat the damage and save lives, more than 3,300 firefighters are out on the job fighting the blazes — including the largest group of American firefighters to fight fires abroad”, according to the Western Journal.
According to Fox News, the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho, said a total of 259 American firefighters are on Australian turf, with 100 arriving Thursday.
The Western Journal report went on to say, “The most recent group of firefighters got a very warm welcome from the people at the Sydney International Airport when they came through the doors, and Shane Fitzsimmons, commissioner of the NSW Rural Fire Service, tweeted the video.”
“Coming through, all gathered gave a spontaneous & lengthy round of applause, reflecting the gratitude & admiration we all have for their generosity,” tweeted Shane Fitzsimmons.

We must keep our Aussie friends in our prayers.
All the good people dealing with this horror and the poor animals being impacted.
They need our support and prayers, now more than ever.
And let’s hope that they catch every last one of these monsters who set some of these fires ablaze.
As of now, police in Australia have arrested and charged two dozen people they say deliberately lit blazes during the wildfire season that has so far killed at least 27 people, destroyed thousands of homes and ravaged nearly 18 million acres of land.
It’s terrible that climate kooks are trying to use this tragedy to push their failed and twisted agenda—droughts have existed and been witnessed for centuries.
