Authorities investigate after mother brings 2 children to fire station

- "What they said on the news, that we didn't want our kids, is so inaccurate," says Jasmine Jones, the woman at the center of a Child Protective Services emergency custody hearing.

Authorities are trying to determine what led Jones to bring her two young children to Houston Fire Department Station 73 on Monday. Firefighters immediately contacted the Houston Police Department and Child Protective Services.

While at the CPS office on Monday, Jones told FOX 26 News that one of her children was having an asthma attack and she was getting help, not trying to abandon the them.
 
Spokeswoman Estela Olguin told FOX 26 that CPS was trying to determine who the children would go home with and were also attempting to contact the father of the children and other relatives.

A firefighter told Jones that her children did not qualify to be left at a fire station according to the 'Baby Moses' Law because the children must be 60 days old or younger, unharmed and safe.
