One thought on “Australians welcomed U.S. firefighters with cheers”

  1. I cannot even imagine what Australian firefighters had to go through when these fires were up and running! Intense fire activity. I heard,(hopefully not), that fires are still burning there? Are the American firefighters being able to stay for 3 week details instead of 2?
