Man rescues rabbit from wildfire in California

(CNN) – As Californians suffer the devastation caused by wildfires that have burned through more than 100,000 acres, one man braved the flames to save a wild rabbit and instantly became the hero we didn’t know we needed.

Video of the daring rescue shows a Ventura County highway near La Conchita engulfed in smoke and flames. An orange-and-black singed sky fills the screen.
But then, a wild rabbit darts across traffic and into the burning brush.
 That’s when the panic sets in. The man clutches his head, jumps up and down, and paces anxiously, agonizingly trying to figure out how to rescue the creature from its burning habitat.
In a last-ditch effort, he wades into the brush to coax the rabbit out from the fire.
After some pleading, the rabbit runs out of the flames and, after a few stumbles, into the motorist’s arms, who carries him to safety along Highway 1.
The moment was a welcome relief from the damage and destruction the fires have caused.
One Twitter user said the video would serve to restore faith in humanity.
We don’t know who this man is, but it doesn’t matter. Whoever he is, he has been added to the ranks of heroes who have risen from tragedy with their small acts of compassion.
