LOS ANGELES -- Lebron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger were among the thousands of residents who had to evacuate their homes early Monday morning due to the Getty Fire in Southern California.

The Getty Fire was threatening some of the Southland's ritziest neighborhoods like Brentwood, and flames were burning amid dangerous red-flag fire conditions.

According to Lebron James' tweet, his family was able to find a safe place to stay after driving around looking for hotel rooms. But he started searching around 5 a.m.



Schwarzenegger evacuated at 3:30 a.m. and encouraged others that live nearby to do the same.



Sen. Kamala Harris revealed that she was also evacuated while speaking at a town hall event in Philadelphia.

"There are a lot of people right now who have lost their homes, structures that have been damaged," Harris said when responding to a question about being evacuated. "The local first responders, firefighters and so many others who are doing courageous work ... They should be given all the resources and all the support."

Eight homes have been destroyed so far.
