The hills above Burbank, CA., were hit with brush fires so bad, authorities ordered a mandatory evacuation because the flames started approaching homes. Here’s what the fires looked like:


One man took the evacuation order to heart and jumped into action by saving his — 1961 Corvette.

David Steele, who The Drive identified as the director of the American Hot Rod Foundation, caught the scene on video, adding: “Yes, when your neighborhood is on fire, you get the ’61 Corvette out first!”

“I went outside, climbed up a short ridge and saw the fire. Then I saw the guy in the Corvette, you can’t tell it from the video but he was really moving,” Steele told Autoweek.

Yes, when your neighborhood is on fire, you get the '61 Corvette out first! #burbankfires #solidaxlecorvette #61corvette

There are no reports of anyone being hurt and firefighters were able to stop the flames before any houses were lost.
