LeBron James, who owns two homes in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, was forced to evacuate due to the Getty Fires.

The fire broke out after 1:30 a.m. near the Getty Center. It spread burning more than 500 acres and placing several thousand buildings and homes under mandatory evacuation. The blaze has also forced the closure of the southbound 405 freeway.

The Los Angeles Lakers star tweeted that he and his family were searching for a place to accommodate them during the evacuation period. Β He also urged others to find safety.

Millions are also facing power outages by PG&E to prevent more fires. It is unclear with current conditions how long the fire will go on for.
