Fueled by extremely fast winds, a large brush fire broke out on the west side of Interstate 405 near the Getty Center in Los Angeles early Monday morning, forcing LeBron James and his family to evacuate their Brentwood home. The Lakers star tweeted that the fires "aren't no joke" and that he "finally found a place to accommodate us" after driving around with his family "trying to get rooms." The Lakers are supposed to play a home game at Staples Center against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night.
