LeBron James sent taco trucks to feed firefighters and first responders that are currently battling the Getty fire that caused his own family to evacuate from their LA home.


Firefighters and first responders that are trying to combat the Getty Fire were treated to warm meals by LA Lakers star LeBron James, who has firsthand experience of what it's like to be affected by the wildfire.


Thanking LeBron James for His Generosity

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti confirmed James' generosity on Twitter, thanking him for generously sending in a taco truck so that the firefighters, first responders, and other volunteers could eat while responding to the Getty Fire.

"Thank you, @KingJames, for generously sending a taco truck to support our @LAFD firefighters, first responders, and partner agencies working to fight the #GettyFire."

The Rapid Fire in Southern California

Since Monday, the fire has taken up more than 650 acres in the area, and the National Weather Service issues its first-ever extreme red flag warning, which means winds, temperatures, and humidity are ripe for fire danger.


James and his family were one of the many who had to evacuate their Brentwood, California home last Monday as the wildfire approached their properties.


Forced Evacuation for Thousands of Families

LeBron took to Twitter at around 4 AM on Monday to reveal that he and his family had to leave their home in a hurry because of the approaching fire. He adds that he and his family have been trying to get a room at a local hotel, but they haven't had luck so far.

The fire in Brentwood is just one of the three major wildfires simulataneously happening in the state of California.

Simultaneous Wildfires in California

The James family is one of the 10,000 households that had to undergo a mandatory evacuation as issued by the LA Fire Department. This included families in the Mandeville Canyon, Mountain Gate, and parts of Brentwood. It was then expanded to parts of Topanga State Park and Pacific Palisades.


The fire in Brentwood is just one of the three major wildfires simultaneously happening in the state of California. Santa Clarita and Sonoma County are also grappling with wildfires. However, while these three are major, there are more than a dozen fires that are burning in the state at the moment.
