The 35-second video showed how the man managed to save the little creature.

Since then, the video has garnered nearly 6,000 retweets and over 13,000 likes.

On Thursday, wildfires raged in densely populated Southern California for a fourth day with a new blaze north of San Diego exploding in size in just a few hours and dangerous conditions forecast until Sunday.

The blazes destroyed hundreds of houses and forced many Los Angeles-area schools to close. Flames hopscotched over highways and railroad tracks, and residents rushed to evacuate their homes with only minutes' warning.

About 200,000 residents were evacuated from their homes at one point, though some were due to return on Thursday evening.
