LeBron James and Schwarzenegger evacuate mansions
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.”
