“To all the @losangelesfiredepartment and @lacountyfd heroes we met last night…thank you,” Grohl wrote in a caption of an Instagram photo showing him with some of the firefighters. “It was an honor to cook for you.”
First responders in Southern and Northern California have been kept busy fighting the wildfires, which have claimed dozens of lives and resulted in widespread property damage.
One of the wives of the firefighters also shared some images on her Instagram account.
“How cool is this?” the caption read. “Dave Grohl and his family brought home cooked BBQ to babes station last night.”
In Northern California, the Auburn Police Department’s Twitter account shared a photo of Food Network star Guy Fieri with an officer on Sunday.
The celeb chef cooked a pulled pork dinner for them.
