US sends additional support to Australia to help battle apocalyptic wildfires

"It's like something that you've never experienced before," one resident said..

Wildfires raged on Saturday in Australia, choking the sky with smoke, forcing thousands to flee and prompting the U.S. to send more fire personnel to help battle the blazes.

The added personnel, nearly two dozen from the U.S. Department of the Interior and U.S. Forest Service, "will continue to support Australia with the resources needed during this unprecedented fire situation," according to a statement from U.S. Forest Service Fire Director Shawna Legarza.

The country's wildfires began in September and are expected to last for several months as the hot weather continues.
