One brave California man walked through the flames to save a helpless bunny – and his daring rescue was caught on camera.

In the clip, the anonymous man can be seen facing the blazing inferno, after having spotted the tiny animal jumping into the fire in terror.

Clearly panicking, the man jumps up and down and waves his arms in an attempt to steer the rabbit to safety, reported CNN.Eventually he coaxes the rabbit out of its perilous position and the man steps into the fire to catch it.

It is not known where the man took the rabbit after saving it. Local camera crews captured the moment, but the hero of the moment refused to do any interview, according to Fox News.

Over 200 000 people have evacuated California after fires ravaged the area earlier this week. Firefighters continue to battle the flames and prevent them from destroying multi-million dollar homes.

More than 200 homes have already been destroyed. The number is likely to increase.
