Firefighters in New South Wales, Australia, are shown jumping from joy after rainfall finally hits the area in a video uploaded by a local fire brigade which has since gone viral.

The area, which has been ravaged with wildfires since September, has finally seen some rainfal this week, which is expected to aid firefighters in containing the existing fires.



Multiple states in Australia have been ridden with wildfires since September, with hundreds of homes destroyed so far and six d*eaths.

New South Wales has been hit especially hard, with firefighters struggling to contain an already 6,000 km long fire raging across the coast.



Some relief has come to the area, however, with rain falling across the region this week. Members of the local fire brigade were so overjoyed with the sight of rain that they started jumping around.

A video of the firefighters celebrating the rain pour was posted by the Leongatha Fire Brigade official Facebook Page this Monday and has since gone viral with over 600,000 views since its upload.



“A little over 24 hours ago our crew helping our neighbors in NSW were blessed by some desperately needed rain and made a short video highlighting the locals delight at a view that’s not been seen in such a long time,” the video was captioned.

The video showed Captain Dale Carruthers and 3rd Lt Peva Pitts, along with a local.
