It was a lucky escape for a koala who survived a bush fire in Australia with only minor injuries.

The poor animal had burnt paws and had frazzled fur when it was found.

After being given a drink of water it was taken to a wildlife centre for treatment.

The wildfires in Australia have caused widespread damaged to scrub land and destroyed seven homes but no humans have been hurt.
