HOUSTON - Children's Protective Services has taken custody of two young boys who were left at a southwest Houston fire station on Monday night.

Officials say there will be a hearing to determine if relatives will be allowed to take the boys, ages 3 years and 14 months.

Police said Monday night that a mom left the kids at the station off Wilcrest Drive near Bissonnet. The woman left but was later found by police and returned to the station.

The woman was questioned, and after telling investigators several stories she and her children were taken to CPS.

In Texas, parents can legally turn over custody of their baby certain locations designated by the state within 60 days of their birth, such as police stations or fire departments, and not be charged with abandonment under the state's Baby Moses law.

The mother did not meet the requirements of the Baby Moses law. As of Monday night, no charges had been filed.
