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

By Mark Pygas

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.
