This golden eagle refuses to give up!

A eaglet was found by a Utah wildlife volunteer after a dump fire set 5,500 acres of woodlands ablaze.

Officials believed the eaglet was lost but somehow, the golden eagle babe survived behind a charred tree, 25 feet below its burnt to a crisp nest.

The volunteer tried to fix the nest but it was no good. It was believed that the eaglet wouldn't be able to fly for a year and his parents would stop feeding him.

With the approval of state and federal wildlife agencies, the eaglet, nicknamed Phoenix, was taken to Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Ogden, UT.

Phoenix suffered burns on his talons, beak, heads and wings. His flight feathers were burned down to an inch of his wings and tail.

Workers say he is doing better but they believe if he was found a day later, he might not have been so lucky.

Officials hope Phoenix can be released back into the wild next year.

Stay strong, little one!
