Extraordinary footage shows man rescuing rabbit as California fires burn
Images and video from the latest widespread wildfires in California paint the picture of a flaming hellscape where all hope is lost. One small act of compassion would suggest otherwise.

A tweet with the footage has been retweeted over 23,000 times by early Thursday morning, Dec. 7.
