Arnold Schwarzenegger, LeBron James Among Celebrity Evacuees In SoCal Wildfires

The wind-whipped wildfire has been burning since Wednesday

LeBron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger are among the celebrity evacuees as a wildfire in Southern California has grown to engulf more than 70 acres.

The Los Angeles Lakers player tweeted just before 4 a.m. that he was trying to find rooms for his family after having to "emergency evacuate" his house, calling the fires "no joke." He later tweeted that he found accommodation, said he was praying for those affected and advised people to get to safety.

Schwarzenegger also took to social media to alert fans he was evacuating.

The wind-whipped wildfire, which has been burning since Wednesday, has grown to 66,231 acres, destroyed 96 structures and threatens roughly 80,000 others, Cal Fire said Monday. The blaze is 5% contained.

Widespread evacuation orders across northern Sonoma County remained in place Monday.
