"Man, these LA [fires] aren’t no joke," he tweeted. "Had to emergency evacuate my house, and I’ve been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!"

It also comes as other parts of California, such as Santa Clarita and Sonoma County, are grappling with wildfires.

In subsequent tweets, James, 34, revealed that he "finally found a place to accommodate" his family and pleaded with other residents still in the wildfire area to evacuate.

"My best wishes as well to the first responders right now doing what they do best!" he added.

According to PEOPLE, Mayor Eric Garcetti said during a press conference that the Getty Fire broke out around 1:30 am local time adjacent to the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center, and it has since blazed through more than 500 acres.

Since the wildfire began raging, the Los Angeles Fire Department has issued mandatory evacuations for more than 10,000 homes and buildings.

Per The Guardian, the LAFD’s mandatory evacuation order initially encompassed Mandeville Canyon and Mountain Gate and parts of Brentwood. The evacuation warning area was later expanded west to include parts of Topanga state park and Pacific Palisades.

According to the publication, by mid-morning, the fire was burning north and west of the museum, but officials said the world-famous facility was built with thick walls and doors to withstand any flames.

The Getty Fire broke out in the same region as a major fire one week earlier. It also comes as other parts of California, such as Santa Clarita and Sonoma County, are grappling with wildfires. More than a dozen fires are burning in California at the moment, CBS News reported.

Besides James, other celebrities who have also evacuated their homes include the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his ex-wife Maria Shriver.
