US firefighters goes to Australia to tackle bushfire

The bushfire in Australia compelled hundreds of people to evacuate. The firefighters are looking for ways to tackle the fire and finding a way to move in. Cody Peel, a fire director with the US Forest Service, said, “We are looking at over 26 million acres have burned.” He added that there were bad conditions in Australia.

A team of nine firefighters is going to Australia. Peel is one of the team members and he will deal with the fire at the frontlines. Peel said that Australian came to their soil when they were in need. Now, it is their turn to go to Australia and help them to take control of the deadly bushfire. Peel added, “We are repaying the debt of Aussie firefighters.

The firefighters from Australia and New Zealand came to help the US when a wildfire hit Northern California in 2018. The fire has been burning in Australia for months and it has left dozens of people dead. Peel and his team will go to Melbourne and they will get a briefing on fires there. The deadly fire has destroyed thousands of homes and left at least a billion animals dead, according to the media reports.

Peel said, “I am just one of many that are willing to run towards the help and offer it any way we can.” More than one hundred US firefighters have already gone to Australia to provide firefighting services there in the last few months. The firefighters are facing heavy challenges there due to the starting of the dry season.

Peel said, “We are looking at triple digits daily. They are pushing 110-115 degrees.” Peel said that finding water to use to help suppress the fires was a key challenge. Remember, Australia is going through a drought. Peel said, “I am not a meteorologist, I’m no climate expert, but everything is pointing this is going to be a long fight.” The US firefighters are responding to an international call for help. They are moving into a dangerous situation when people are looking to move out.
