Danish volunteer firemen to help with Australia wildfires

A group of 10 voluntary firemen will leave Denmark this week to assist with fighting Australia's wildfires after an official Danish offer to assist was turned down

The Danish Emergency Management Agency said last week that Australian authorities had declined an offer to be aided by a 50-member team from Denmark for now

The voluntary group was then contacted by a volunteer-based organization in Australia called BlazeAid, which said it needed help to fell trees and clear areas so people can return to their homes.

It was not clear when the group will depart for Australia.
