Baby squirrels survive Oklahoma wildfire.

Some little survivors are spreading smiles and hope around town in Harrah, Oklahoma.

Their tails and whiskers are singed, but two baby squirrels made it through last Friday's wildfires.

Bryan Lee discovered the small animals by accident.

The tree they lived in was completely burned on the Lee family property.

"I had never seen anything like it before. Something surviving after a fire like that," Lee says.

The squirrels are now in the care of Julie Cox.

She says they are about five weeks old and doing very well.

When the squirrels are old enough, the plan is to return them to their birthplace and release them there.
