A bear burned in a Washington wildfire is recovering in South Lake Tahoe, and she’s not alone.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care took in two new bears this week and is now caring for 11 – the most it’s ever had at once, the Tahoe Daily Tribune reports.

Cinder, the bear burned in the Carlton Complex Fire in Washington, arrived Monday in a two-seat airplane flown by an animal transportation rescue group, according to CBS Sacramento.

Cinder has second and third-degree burns and will need “several months” to recover, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care co-founder Tom Millham told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

“She was basically walking on her elbows because her paws had been burned from hot coals — there are abrasions on her paws and a lot of other burns on her body that are healing already,” Millham told NBC Bay Area.
