Bear Burned in Colorado Wildfire Making Full Recovery
Colorado has three major wildfires that are burning out of control, but here's a little bit of good news. A bear that was burned in the East Canyon Fire is expected to make a full recovery.
ABC News shared on Twitter that the black bear had burns on its feet, but after a bit of rehabilitation, is expected to be released back into the wild.
The East Canyon Fire was ignited by lightning in June, and burned over 2,000 acres in Southern Colorado.
Now, firefighters are still battling The Pine Gulch Fire in Western Colorado and the Grizzly Creek Fire near Glenwood Springs. On August 13, the Cameron Peak Fire began burning 60 miles west of Fort Collins in Larimer County. The wildfire has already burned over 4,500 acres as of August 14, and the cause is under investigation.
