Wolf pups rescued after Alaskan wildfires

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Several wolf pups are now safe after they were rescued from an area of Alaska scorched by recent wildfires.

One firefighter captured this video of crews holding and helping the wolf pups, which are believed to be about 5-weeks-old.

Five were rescued but one didn't survive the fires that burned 200,000 acres.  Another one had to have a porcupine quill taken out of its eye.

Rescuers gave the wolf pups sugar water to help with hydration.  The pups were then taken to the Alaska Zoo for evaluation.

On Thursday, they ate 50 grams of puppy formula, which is twice as much as they ate the day before.
