A badly burnt koala is on the road to recovery, after a brave woman rescued it from a raging wildfire in Australia.

The woman gave him water, and wrapped him in her shirt, after finding the little guy wandering through a burning forest.

The koala, named Lewis, was taken to an animal hospital, where he's doing better, but he may not be allowed back in the wild.
