NBA star LeBron James sent a taco truck to help feed emergency crews battling the Getty Fire in Southern California.
The Los Angeles Lakers player was forced to evacuate his own Brentwood home during the fire.
“Thank you, @KingJames, for generously sending a taco truck to support our @LAFD firefighters, first responders, and partner agencies working to fight the #GettyFire,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted Tuesday.

James has become known as a taco aficionado. In recent months, James has posted several “Taco Tuesday” videos on Instagram showing his family or teammates having taco dinners.
Last month, the U.S. Patent Office denied James’ application to trademark “Taco Tuesday,” determining that the phrase was a “commonplace term.” According to ESPN, James had sought to monetize his “Taco Tuesday” videos.
