Footage recorded by a local news crew shows a man saving a rabbit on Highway 1 in California while wildfires blazed by the roadside.

Witnesses said that the man in the video below, recorded by RMG News, pulled over after spotting a wild rabbit caught up in the flames on the side of the road.

He can subsequently be seen cradling the rabbit in his arms and is believed to have declined a request for an on-camera interview shortly afterwards.

A state of emergency was declared in Los Angeles on Wednesday as a result of fires that have led to mass evacuations and road closures and caused damage to numerous homes in the area.
