Whilst wildfires in California continue to cause devastation, one snippet of news from amidst the carnage has brought us some good cheer.

A man decided to go up against the fire in an attempt to save a wild rabbit which came very close to being burned, according to CNN.

A video of the incident has been posted on Twitter, it shows a busy road as cars drive past the flames and smoke at its side in Ventura County.

A rabbit then heads into the bushes where the fire is burning but is luckily spotted by the man, who is wearing shorts and a hoodie.

At first it seems he is not sure what to do and he jumps about on the spot with his head in his hands in apparent despair. But it is not long before he reaches a conclusion and starts attempting to coax the rabbit out.

Thankfully the rabbit did turn away from the fire, but in order to stop the creature from going near the flames again the man is seen picking it up and holding it in his arms.

It is not clear who the man is who saved the rabbit, and he did not accept an invitation to be interviewed about the matter. Thankfully his act of selfless heroism has been immortalised on film.

Take a look at a video of the incident below
