Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE 2 - By Pueng Vongs and Martha Ross

The Getty Fire was threat­en­ing thou­sands of homes in Brent­wood Mon­day, in­clud­ing those of Los An­ge­les Lak­ers su­per­star Le­Bron James and ac­tor and for­mer Cal­i­for­nia Gover­nor Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger.

Sch­warzeneg­ger said on Twit­ter that he evac­u­ated at 3:30 a.m. “If you are in an evac­u­a­tion zone, don’t screw around,” he wrote. “Get out. Right now I am grate­ful for the best fire­fight­ers in the world, the true ac­tion heroes who charge into the dan­ger to pro­tect their fel­low Cal­i­for­ni­ans.”

At 3:53 a.m. James tweeted that he and his fam­ily were driv­ing around look­ing for a place to stay with no luck.

James owns two homes in Brent­wood, ac­cord­ing to the L.A. Times. The sec­ond one he bought in 2017 for $23 mil­lion. It is a 15,846 square foot newly built home with eight bed­rooms and 11 baths. It fea­tures an el­e­va­tor, home the­ater, and wine cel­lar among many other ameni­ties.

No word on whether the fire im­pacted James’ homes.

After he found shel­ter, James of­fered prayers for af­fected fam­i­lies and grat­i­tude for first re­spon­ders.

The Hol­ly­wood Reporter said that other en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try fig­ures who con­firmed that their homes were threat­ened and that they had evac­u­ated were di­rec­tor David O. Rus­sell, show run­ner Kurt Sut­ter and Glen Maz­zara, the for­mer “Walk­ing Dead” writerex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer who is cur­rently work­ing on Ama­zon’s “The Dark Tower.”
