Man Pulls Over To Save Wild Rabbit From California Wildfire And Becomes Internet Hero

More than 100,000 acres in Southern California have been burned by wildfires in the last week, with some 27,000 residents being forced to flee areas like Bel Air and the Getty museum. More than 1,000 firefighters are now battling the biggest blaze, named Thomas, which is far from under control. 

Today's brush burning index was the highest yet, 296, with anything over 165 being considered extreme. Terrazas officials warned that the fire may continue to spread, citing strong winds and dangerously dry vegetation as the cause. 

But as more and more people are forced to flee their homes, there are some uplifting stories coming out of the destruction. In Ventura County, as residents fled Thomas Fire on Highway 1, a passing news crew was able to capture footage of a man doing something pretty amazing at the side of the road...

The unnamed man declined an interview with the news crew. People were pretty impressed by the heroics, to say the least.   

Get this guy a medal.
