Since September last year, the Australian States of Queensland and New South Wales have been ravaged by Bush fires that has destroyed thousands of hectares of vegetation and countless of properties.

But unlike humans who can help themselves and get away from the danger, many animals in the bushes were not so lucky and unfortunately many died in the raging fire.

But pictures of some who barely survived the fires and were receiving help and care from firefighters who have also seen their fair share of injuries and deaths have sent many hearts melting.

One firefighter could be seen giving water to a distressed koala who probably was the only one to survive in its family and another also carried a distressed Monkey on his back away from the fires to safety.

While there was good news for the firefighters as the rain finally came down in Queensland, their woes are not entirely over as there has been warning by Prime minister Scott Morisson that the fire could still burn for many months.

The emergency services report a total number of 24 people have lost their lives since the beginning of the fires and many more injured in the blaze.
