LOS ANGELES -- LeBron James said in a tweet early Monday morning that he had to evacuate from his home because of a wildfire burning in his neighborhood of Los Angeles.

"Had to emergency evacuate my house and I've been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!" James wrote.

James later tweeted that he found accommodations and sent prayers to families in the area, saying, "Pretty please get to safety ASAP."

"My best wishes as well to the first responders right now doing what they do best!" James said in another tweet.

The blaze broke out overnight and grew to 400 acres by 5:30 a.m. Monday, prompting thousands of evacuations.
