The Herald Sun has reunited the Valencia Creek CFA crew with a woman whose house they saved in Seaton during the height of the Aberfeldy-Donnellys fire.

The spotlight fell on the Valencia Creek crew when a photo of a note they left for the home owner was posted to Twitter.

The note said: "Did our best. Your house was OK at 7am. Under attack at 6.15am. Good luck. Crew of Valencia Tanker."

The crew was reunited with the woman by the Herald Sun to highlight all the great work done by emergency services so far this summer.
