In the event of a wildfire, California residents are accustomed to being told to grab the essentials and evacuate quickly. For some, “the essentials” include a prized Xbox One.
While others may rescue the family dog or cat, Robert Romero grabbed his beloved game console from a burning home in California. A photographer with Pasadena Star-News captured the moment.

Robert’s true passion inspired many users on Twitter and Reddit.
The heroic rescue even prompted a response from a Director of Programming at Microsoft. “Anyone have his social contact info? I’d love to reach out to him.” Larry Hryb writes on Reddit, “If you know who it is please message me.”
The status of Robert’s home and belongings remains unclear, but, if nothing else, it seems his sense of humor is still intact.
