The man tried to go back into the unit to rescue the second rabbit but was overcome by smoke and had to retreat.

He was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.

“We received information that there was a rabbit inside that was a much-loved pet of the resident,” firefighter Garry Warburton told 9News.

Firefighters entered the second-storey apartment and found the bunny, named Brian.

“We stumbled across the rabbit hiding under the TV cabinet,” Mr Warburton said.
