A round of applause broke out at Sydney International Airport for a group of American firefighters who arrived this week to help fight the Australian wildfires.

Video posted by the commissioner of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service showed Australians at the airport bursting into applause and cheers as the Americans walked through the arrivals hall.

“U.S. firefighters arrived at Sydney Int Airport this week, on their way to assist with fire fighting in Victoria,” Shane Fitzsimmons wrote on Twitter.  

“Coming through, all gathered gave a spontaneous & lengthy round of applause, reflecting the gratitude & admiration we all have for their generosity,” she also said.

Australia has been hit by the worst wildfires in decades, which have killed over two dozen people and a staggering 1 billion animals are now estimated dead.
