While the destructive wildfires in Northern California have been in the news over the past few days, the fire that’s affecting James, his family and thousands of others is a brush fire near the Getty Center museum in Los Angeles. High winds and low humidity have caused the fire to spread, leading to the evacuation order that covers James’ neighborhood.

Despite the seriousness of the situation, people had jokes for James about him leaving his hometown Cleveland for LA, because of course they did.

Thankfully, James and his family did end up finding a place to crash, which he tweeted about just after 4am in LA.

He also tweeted wishes for the safety of those affected, and gave thanks to the first responders who are undoubtedly working very hard all around California to manage the fires.
