Aussie Kid Donates Their Birthday Cake To Firefighters Battling Blazes

Aussie Kid Donates Their Birthday Cake To Firefighters Battling Blazes

Firefighters have been working around the clock over the past few days battling dozens of fires around Australia. Homes have been destroyed and crews are being pushed to the brink to ensure no more are lost to fire.

Thankfully, because the Aussie spirit comes alive during these tough moments, there have been loads of people donating food and supplies to ensure the firies are fully stocked.

It's not known who was responsible, but the Gulmarrad Rural Fire Brigade revealed a child recently donated their birthday cake to them.

One person wrote: "What a special selfless littleun we love all you guy's that appreciate all we do in the RFS and other agencies as well, thank you."

Another added: "Wow that's so wonderful faith in humanity restored. So sweet enjoy guys you deserve it."

The fire service is one of many who have been inundated with infernos raging due to hot, dry climate.

The Gulmarrad Rural Fire Brigade has urged everyone to go a little slow with the donations, purely because they can't keep up with everything.

Captain Andrew Paul said on Facebook: "Your generosity and spirit as a community has been second to none and the donations at the station literally bring a tear to the eye and make everything we do worth while.

"Unfortunately though we just don't have the facilities to accept, store and distribute large amounts of food.

"Our fridges are full and we will do our best to use and share what we have with other brigades but please don't drop any more food at the station."

Fire crews in New South Wales and Queensland are worried that conditions could worsen over the next few days with wind predicted.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service's Rob Rogers told the ABC: "These winds, coupled with the underlying drought affecting much of NSW, has made firefighting extremely difficult.

"Unfortunately, we think that the property loss will climb from what we understand has been lost so far but it will take some time until crews can get in there and tally those costs."

While a kid's birthday cake might seem trivial in a time like this, it shows that the firies have the backing of everyone in the community.
