TYLER — The east Texas wildfires have caused havoc on several families and homes over the past week, and that's not excluding animals.
Two kittens were rescued from a home that was lost in the Jackson Heights area fire on Monday.
The Humane Society of East Texas was told there was also a mother cat and four other kittens.
The rescuers believe the mother was trying to save the litter, and she and the others did not make it out.
"If you look at his little paws you can tell that he has been burned more than the other one," said Gayle Helms of the humane society. "And you can tell they have not had food and water in a couple of days."
The Humane Society of East Texas is rehabilitating the kittens now.
They should be ready for adoption in about three weeks.
