    MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A chimney cleaner faces animal cruelty
    charges after setting a fire to try to smoke three baby raccoons
    out of a chimney.
    Richard Gerace, 53, of Bloomfield, the owner of Brite Side
    chimney cleaning, was charged with three counts of animal cruelty.
    The charges came about after a resident in the Convent Mews housing
    complex called police around 10:25 a.m. Thursday, seeking help for
    the animals, said Morristown Animal Control Officer Jim Osorio.
    The chimney people started a fire to smoke them out," Osorio
    told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Friday's editions. "When I got
    there, the three little guys were burnt pretty good. The chimney
    guy told me he'd done that before. But I told him, 'no, you just
    can't do that.' He was just tormenting and torturing the animals
    with that fire and smoke."
    Osorio found the raccoons, all about 8 weeks old, trapped in the
    fireplace. Their paws were blackened and one had skin hanging from
    its nose and face, he said. The animals were taken to the Animal
    Clinic of Morris Plains.
    Tracy Robinson, a veterinarian at the clinic, said she treated
    the wild raccoons with fluids and antibiotics. Two were in good
    condition,she said, with the third more seriously burned. They will
    be held for observation for 48 hours, she said, and then placed
    back in the wild by a wildlife rehabilitator from the state
    Division of Fish, Game, and Wildlife.
