Lakers’ star LeBron James is among the many people affected by the ongoing California wildfires. Firefighters and first responders have attempted to help put out the fire that’s affected many people near the Getty Center area.
To show his support to those that are helping put out the fire, James has sent a taco truck to the base camp to feed those helping with the relief efforts. In a recent interview with the LA Times, LeBron said that his home had not yet been affected.
“I am blessed, and I am truly blessed to be able to get my family to safety at that point in time and not be able to face anything that was harmful to us,” James said.
“And I wish the same for everyone else in the community that’s ever had to deal with these things over the years. There’s been so many natural disasters over many decades that have been harmful. People have lost lives. But like I said, the most important thing is the first responders, how important they are, how committed they are to be able to respond at that hour, at that speed.”
While we all asked LeBron about his family’s experience being evacuated during the Getty Fire, he made sure the focus was on the first responders. Definitely worth watching. pic.twitter.com/bKwb3TFqIT
