BITTERROOT NATIONAL FOREST, MT (CNN) - Firefighters rescued two mountain lion cubs caught in a wildfire on Friday.

Their fur is singed, but they appear to be doing OK.

Wildfire crews in the national forest spotted the cubs under a burning log and doused them with water.

Their mother was not found.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency says the tiny cubs are younger than three weeks old.

They're now at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Helena.
