What it's like working with wildlife rescued from Australia's deadly fires

Tracy Burgess has 15 possums living in her home, including one with paws so badly burned, she has to bandage them nightly.

She's a volunteer with Australia's Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Services, which is working to help creatures caught in the country's deadly infernos.
