BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - Dozens of snakes are in good condition after a home in the Denver suburb of Brighton caught fire. The trick now is to get them out of the basement.
Two adults and five children also got out safely after the fire broke out early Thursday. The home is a total loss.
Brighton Fire Chief Mike Schuppe says firefighters are working with the homeowner to get the hundreds of exotic snakes out of the debris and into a new home.
According to KMGH-TV ( http://tinyurl.com/cw3dhek), the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
