    PORT LINCOLN, Australia (CNN) -- Fire crews in southern Australia have contained a massive wildfire in the coastal town of Port Lincoln.

    This koala clinging to a charred tree in Port Lincoln, Australia is a symbol of hope.

    A passerby saw the little bear and and offered it some water. It was obviously thirsty and drank right from the good samaritan's hand.

    Fire officials say it's amazing that no one has died in the blaze.
    But it has taken a large toll on wildlife.

    Dozens of buildings, including a home and vacation cabins, have been destroyed.

    The flames have also destroyed thousands of acres. 

    Port Lincoln is about 200-miles outside the capital city of Adelaide.
