LeBron James Sent A Taco Truck To Los Angeles Firefighters

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James handed an assist to the Los Angeles Fire Department on Tuesday by sending a taco truck to help feed firefighters.

That is according to L.A Mayor Eric Garcetti, who thanked the NBA icon for the kind gesture via his official Twitter account.

James has been forced to evacuate his home in Brentwood, California, along with his family, with the Getty fire only 15 percent contained as of Tuesday.

"It's just challenging at that hour, getting my family, getting my kids, getting everybody and having to evacuate at such a rapid, rapid rate," he told reporters ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. "You don't really have much time to think about what you can get or what you can do. You just got to get out and get to safety."

Getty has kept the Los Angeles Fire Department pretty busy this week but the welfare of the men on the ground is also of paramount importance. As such, James' gesture has likely gone a long way.

"Thank you, @KingJames, for generously sending a taco truck to support our @LAFD firefighters, first responders, and partner agencies working to fight the #GettyFire," Garcetti wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, firefighters are working round the clock in an attempt to contain the Kincade fire in Northern California. Kincade is the largest active wildfire at the moment.

Chef Jose Andre's non-profit World Central Kitchen, along with chefs Tyler Florence and Guy Fieri, has been feeding first responders and evacuees in Sonoma County.

LeBron's move is in keeping with his "Taco Tuesdays" movement, a phrase he tried to trademark earlier this year. While his attempt to make the saying his own failed, he's made a very meaningful contribution to the battle against Getty while sticking to the theme.
