LeBron James sends taco truck to feed Calif. firefighters amid wildfires

LeBron James treated first responders in California to a taco truck as they worked to contain at least 10 fires burning in the state.  

The Lakers player rented the truck to "serve the hardworking fire fighters, first responders and other agencies working to fight the Getty Fire," according to a post on Instagram.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti praised the star's support for their hard work.

“Thank you @KingJames, for generously sending a taco truck to support our @LAFD firefighters, first responders, and partner agencies working to fight the #GettyFire,” Garcetti wrote on Twitter.

James and his family were forced to evacuate their Brentwood, California, home on Monday as the fire approached.  

“I [pray] for all the families in the area that could be affected by these [fires] now! Pretty please get to safety ASAP," James wrote on Twitter. “My best wishes as well to the first responders right now doing what they do best!”

The Getty Fire has burned more than 745 acres since Monday. It is 39% contained as of Thursday morning, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.. However, an Extreme Red Flag Warning remains in effect through Thursday night.
