KATHY GRIFFIN, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, OTHERS FLEE WILDFIRES AS JOHN CENA DONATES $500K

Wildfires have broken out in Northern and Southern California, ripping across vineyards and land and devastating businesses and homes. The fires in Southern Californai have forced several celebrities, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kathy Griffin and LeBron James to flee their homes. The wildfires have burned through an area twice the size of San Francisco and have destroyed almost 60 homes, CBS reports.

In Southern California, winds threaten to make the Getty Fire even worse. Up to 10,000 structures are threatened. All told, Pacific Gas & Electric warns that nearly 4 million people could lose power across the state.

CELEBRITY EVACUATIONS

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg shared that he was safe on Twitter, writing: "Awakened and evacuated by the amazing alert system from #lafd #Grateful #GettyFire."

LeBron James live-tweeted his evacuation with wife Savannah Brinson and their three children.

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

James went on to say that they "finally found a place to accommodate us."

Ryan Phillippe didn't get into specifics, but responded "same" to James' tweet about the emergency evacuation.

Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he left on Twitter and told followers in danger to not "screw around."

James Corden, meanwhile, admitted that leaving his West L.A. home was "terrifying."

Kathy Griffin also live-tweeted her crisis: "No, I'm not one of those a-holes stopping on the side of the freeway to get this video. Took it from my driveway. Endless thanks @LAFD @LAPDHQ and all first responders. They are tireless heroes!"

JOHN CENA

Playing With Fire star John Cena, meanwhile, is donating $500,000 to First Responders. He shared on Twitter: "As you may know, I have a movie coming out called ‘Playing With Fire' in theaters on Nov. 8. It's a wonderful comedy I think the whole family will enjoy, and it showcases a group of people that I believe are heroes — first responders. You also know that right now California is in dire straits. It is burning. It is under siege from massive wildfires statewide, which means our first responders are working around-the-clock, and they need our help."

"Today I asked myself, ‘What can I do?' I have come up with an answer. I want Paramount to do me one favor," he continued. "I want them to pick a charity. Pick a charity that aids our first responders as soon as possible and on behalf of Playing With Fire and out of respect to the people that I truly believe are heroes, my response will be to immediately donate half a million dollars to this cause."
