ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Five wolf pups orphaned by a wildfire in Alaska are at their new home.

KTVA reports (https://is.gd/lPNR9L) the wolves were flown from Anchorage to the Minnesota Zoo on Tuesday.

An official for the zoo near Minneapolis says the wolves will be quarantined for about a month before going on permanent display.

The five pups were taken to the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage on May 27 after being orphaned in the Funny River Fire on the Kenai (KEY’-nigh) Peninsula, near Soldotna.

The Alaska Zoo had the pups on display until Monday.
