ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The fire raging in southwest Colorado for almost a month didn't just lead to evacuations of humans.


It's also led to dangerous conditions for the area's wildlife.

Soon a bear cub rescued by wildlife officers from an area of the forest engulfed in flames on June 22 will be returned to his natural habitat after being treated for severe burns on his feet, according to a release from Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Officials said they don't know how the cub was separated from his mother when she was found in a tree.
