“It’s finally raining!” tweeted @ctn717 in the video showing a group of happy firefighters.
As the rain hit the fire, the smoke rose from the ground and the firefighters were seen happily laughing, clearly grateful for the rain. Some of them can’t handle the joy and were seen jumping of excitement.
