Incredible footage has surfaced which shows a man trying desperately to save a rabbit from a massive blaze in California.

The video, which was filmed by RMG News, shows an unnamed man who is watching a wild rabbit scurry on the side of a highway around the huge flames.

He is visibly distressed as the rabbit seems to head straight for the fire, but manages to catch the poor creature just in time to bring him to safety.

The cameraman said the man pulled over to save the critter, and is believed to have declined a request for an on-camera interview shortly afterwards.

Massive fires spread across California on Wednesday, resulting in a state of emergency which led to mass evacuations and road closures around the area.

One of the fires spread through the hills above Ventura driven by 50mph winds, hundreds of buildings have burned down.

More than 100,000 people from across the region have fled, and hundreds of schools in the region have had to close down because of the blaze.

This year has been the worst ever for fires in the region, and has been exacerbated by the increasing developments in dangerous areas.

The fires look set to rage on with the National Weather Service reporting ‘extreme fire danger’ for today and beyond.

More extreme winds are expected in the region, which will probably carry embers and spread the fires into new regions – putting more people at risk.
