Firefighters rescued two mountain lion cubs caught in a wildfire in Montana on Friday.

Wildfire crews in the Bitterroot National Forest spotted the male cubs under a burning log and doused them with water.

The cubs' mother was not found.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Agency says the tiny cubs are about 1-2 weeks old. They're now at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Helena.
