Firefighter's Family Jump For Joy As He Returns From The Frontlines

A firefighter's return to his family has gone viral after he was filmed coming home from the frontlines.

There are hundreds of firefighters who have been battling bushfires around Australia for weeks.

Some haven't seen their families and loved ones for ages, with the only bit of rest they get being spent on sleeping to be alert for the next day. It puts an enormous strain on both sides as you never know when you'll get to see each other again.

Just before New Year's Eve, a raging bushfire wiped out communities from Bundanoon right down to the border with Victoria.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service has revealed that 1,870 homes have been destroyed since the bushfire season began.

While that might seem a lot, it's nothing compared to the 11,645 homes that the RFS has saved.

Firefighters were benefited by a light falling of rain overnight, which will assist them in their efforts to get a handle on some of the bush and grass fires burnings across the state.
