Body: 

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.

Footage provided to ABC by RMG News shows an unidentified young man catching a small, wild rabbit in danger of getting hurt.

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

The man declined an on-camera interview and the fate of the rabbit is unknown. You can find further coverage of the California wildfires here.
