As wildfires continue to wreak havoc across California, LeBron James and his family have been forced to evacuate.

The Los Angeles Laker revealed on Twitter early Monday morning that he had to “emergency evacuate” his home.

“Man these LA [fires] aren’t no joke. Had to emergency evacuate my house and I’ve been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!,” wrote James, following up with a tweet around 10 minutes later that he had “finally found a place to accommodate” the family.

Additionally, the NBA star tweeted out his thoughts for all those impacted by the fires, including first responders on the scene.

“I 🙏🏾 for all the families in the area that could be affected by these 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 now! Pretty please get to safety ASAP,” James wrote.

“My best wishes as well to the first responders⛑ right now doing what they do best! 🙏🏾💪🏾,” the Nike athlete continued.

Despite the wildfires, James and his Lakers are business-as-usual mode. The team is slated to play at home Tuesday against the Memphis Grizzles.

According to the Los Angeles Timesaround 10,000 homes were under mandatory evacuation orders in the L.A. area after the Getty fire broke out alongside the 405 Freeway, next to the Getty Center.
