RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. - An awkward moment for a reporter covering a huge wildfire burning east of Los Angeles.

"Wow, you're super pretty. You wanna go on a date sometime?" asked the man.

A reporter for KTLA-TV was in the middle of covering neighborhood evacuations forced by a wildfire when a random gentleman caller asks her for a date.

To top it off, it's unclear whether the shirtless Casanova even lives in the neighborhood. He told the reporter he lives further up the street and just walked over to "check out the fire."

Earlier this week, 1,700 homes were under mandatory evacuation orders. The evacuation order was lifted Wednesday. The fire has damaged one building.
