Lucy Bailey, 10, was scared for her home and her family when bushfires raged through NSW Hunter Valley region this week.


When her Kurri Kurri home was saved she decided to write a thank you note, which her mum posted to Facebook.


‘Dear Firefighters,’ the letter begins,


‘Thank you so much for keeping us safe today!’

She admits she was ‘freaking out’ as the fire came very close to her house.


Adding: ‘You all deserve one million dollars!’


The east coast’s recent heatwave have caused several bushfires to rage across NSW and parts of the ACT, with the Hunter being one of the hardest hit.

70 trucks and 300 firefighters battled the Kurri Kurri blaze.
