Fire men sing Samoan hymn in Northern California
A team of fire-fighters were recorded singing a Christian hymn whilst fighting off the forest fires in California, USA.
Over 10000 fire fighters were called to the scene to fight off 13 important focus points of the fire. Forty-two people have been found dead and close to 85 million hectares have been burnt.
The fire-fighters are specially trained in reducing remote regional fires and difficult areas. This specific team belongs to the department of American Samoa based in Polynesia.
Fire broke out on 8th October 2017. The wild-fires have displaced roughly 100,000 people and claimed over 7700 homes.
The moment of praise from the mouths of the fire fighters was caught on video by fashion designer Kuegi Toilolo. The video already has more than 4.3 million views.
The hymn sung is called “Fa’afetai i le Atua” which translates to be like a thanksgiving to God in the Samoan language.
