Smokey Bear visits cub recovered during 416 Fire_1530834005111.jpg.jpg

A bear cub burned in the 416 Fire near Durango recently got a special visit. 

Nearly three weeks ago, firefighters noticed the bear wandering alone through a burned area. 

After a couple of days, Colorado Parks and Wildlife was called in to treat the bear. 

Earlier this week, Smokey Bear, who has a similar history, visited the wildlife rehabilitation center, which is taking care of the animal. 

Right now, the plan is to release the cub with other orphaned cubs from the same center.
