This little girl's letter to fire crews who battled wildfires in her area is precious
Extreme weather events always highlight just how much our emergency services do for us and how stuck we would be without the work they do.
One grateful young girl in Wales has expressed her thanks after watching her local fire crews battling wild blazes in her area.
With the ongoing heatwave, land across Wales was scorched by fires in the past number of weeks.
Once again, huge bravery and professionalism from @SWFireandRescue tonight, fighting a fire in the dark, around a quarry, on Garth Mountain, Maesteg. You can make out the torches of the Firefighters just behind the fires. @WalesOnline pic.twitter.com/kXp3G8o9oY

A number of homes in parts of the country were evacuated over fears that they would too catch fire.
Ten-year-old Kelcea Sainsbury from Brynmawr had been following the news of the fires and last week wrote to 'Everyone at South Wales Fire Service', thanking them for "making it a safe community to live in."
"I would like to say thank you and well done for battleing the fire in Cwmcelyn and makeing sure everyone was safe.
“You are amazing in what you do helping save life’s and making it a safe community to live in... I bet it’s hard working in this heat but again that won’t stop you doing an amazing job.”
