“Coming through, all gathered gave a spontaneous [and] lengthy round of applause, reflecting the gratitude [and] admiration we all have for their generosity,” he added, “#NSWRFS @NSWRFS.”

One of the firefighter’s wives, Autumn Snyder, told the outlet how “refreshing and gratifying” it was to see “them be welcomed and appreciated.”

The fires in the country have been burning now for more than a month, wiping out more than 17.9 million acres, killing 27 people and have left another half a billion animals dead.
