Man these LA 🔥 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! 🤦🏾♂️— LeBron James (@KingJames) October 28, 2019
Schwarzenegger evacuated at 3:30 a.m. and encouraged others that live nearby to do the same.
We evacuated safely at 3:30 this morning. If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out. Right now I am grateful for the best firefighters in the world, the true action heroes who charge into the danger to protect their fellow Californians. #GettyFire— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) October 28, 2019

"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."
