All wildfires in New South Wales are now contained

By

Thousands of firefighters from all around the world are still battling bushfires in Australia that have been burning for months. But firefighters in the state of New South Wales will now get some much-needed rest after the Rural Fire Service (RFS) announced that all fires burning in New South Wales have been contained for the first time this season.

That's good news for Australia's volunteer firefighters, who have been battling the blazes in grueling shifts for weeks on end. So far, at least 33 people have been killed in the wildfires. That number includes four firefighters, three of whom were from the United States.
