AUSTRALIA (CNN/SEVEN NETWORK) - A koala bear made a lucky escape from a raging bush fire in Australia.
A passerby spotted the marsupial sitting in what was left of a burned tree, and gave it some water before taking it to an animal hospital.
The koala suffered singed fur and a burnt paw.
The fires burned more than 2,000 acres, destroying several homes.
