Emergency crews saved a koala from a wildfire in Australia's Victoria state.

Rescuers nursed the koala back to health, hand-feeding it water and gum leaves that was captured on video. They even nicknamed the koala "Constable K Bear."

Firefighters eventually contained the blaze, but not before it destroyed more than 100 homes.
