American firefighters battle Aussie wildfires

José Molina Intendente

Firefighters from the U.S. are making a difference combating the massive bush fires ravaging Australia.

The fires, fueled by drought and the country’s hottest and driest year on record, have been raging since September, months earlier than is typical for Australia’s annual wildfire season. So far, the blazes have killed 28 people and nearly half a billion animals, destroyed 2,000 homes, and scorched an area of more than 25.5 million acres -- roughly the size of South Korea.
