While battling the massive Silverado Fire in California, firefighters happened upon a little life in desperate need of saving.

It was a little barn owl. Some of his feathers had been burned, leaving him unable to fly.

Rescuers wrapped the owl in a coat and transported him to safety after realizing he had little chance of surviving on his own. The owl seemed to recognize he was in excellent hands as he rested in his rescuer’s arms.

Here’s a video of that moment:

“He’s safe and sound and currently with animal control,” Orange County Fire Authority wrote.

The owl was then transferred to the Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital, where doctors determined that most of his injuries appeared to be superficial — he only damaged his feathers which, fortunately, will grow back with time.

The owl’s keepers noted, “We will have to hang onto him for a couple of months until he molts new feathers.” “He’ll be able to be freed after he obtains fresh feathers.”

Meanwhile, the owl is demonstrating that his spirit is still alive.

“[He’s] a fiery character, which is a good indication!” In a recent update, the caregivers stated.

Thanks to the firefighters’ lifesaving efforts, and those dedicated to his long-term care, the little barn owl will one day fly free.

“This is why we do what we do,” the bird hospital wrote.
