A large wild fire has threatened thousands of homes in the celebrity enclave of Brentwood in Southern California Monday.

The growing blaze, dubbed the "Getty fire" which is near the famed museum, has forced widespread evacuations, including some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

The fire erupted around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning near the 405 Freeway and rapidly spread, scorching more than 500 acres. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said 2,600 customers are without power in parts of Bel Air, Westwood, and Brentwood. At least five homes have been been destroyed, despite firefighters best efforts.

"Get out when we say get out," Mayor Eric Garcetti said. "The only thing you cannot replace is you and your family."

Meanwhile, several celebrities affected by the fire took to social media to let the public know how they are faring.

"We evacuated safely at 3:30 this morning. If you are in an evacuation zone, don't screw around. Get out. Right now I am grateful for the best firefighters in the world, the true action heroes who charge into the danger to protect their fellow Californians," shared Arnold Schwarzenegger.

His ex-wife Maria Shriver shared his sentiment on Twitter. "Praying for everyone in the path of this terrifying destruction. Thank you again to our firefighters for keeping us safe. If you're in an evacuation zone, please follow the warnings and evacuate immediately. The winds are strong and the fires move quickly," she begged.

And the premiere for Schwarzenegger's new film "Terminator: Dark Fate" was cancelled because of the fire, while the catering for the after-party will be donated to the Red Cross.

NBA Superstar LeBron James was having trouble finding shelter after evacuating as he wrote,"Man these LA (fire emoji) aren't no joke. Had to emergency evacuate my house and I've been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!" Fortunately, he tweeted an hour later he had found accommodations and gave thanks to the emergency workers.

"My best wishes as well to the first responders right now doing what they do best!" LeBron shared.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt asked followers to donate to the emergency responders as he wrote, "I personally will be going to LAFD.org to make a donation. I urge you to do the same if you please."

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville gave a shout out to get neighbors to take action by posting, "Wake up!!! Brentwood is on fire!!! F--k!"

"Safe in a hotel room with my family and dogs. Awakened and evacuated by the amazing alert system from #lafd #Grateful #GettyFire," shared Marvel mainstay Clark Gregg, who plays Agent Phil Coulson.

News anchor legend Katie Couric offered her prayers to those involved as she wrote, "Praying for anyone near to the #GettyFire and for the emergency crews working to get it under control - stay safe California."

Sitcom veteran Christa Miller -- who has starred in such programs as "The Drew Carey Show" and "Scrubs" -- revealed a photo of flames looming over her house, and assured followers they had evacuated.

"The Walking Dead" producer Glen Mazzara announced he had evacuated his home as Kelly Rizzo -- journalist and wife of Bob Saget -- shared the same news.

Kurt Sutter -- creator of "The Shield" and "Sons of Anarchy" -- posted a video of the fire's destruction with the caption, "Evacuated. Apparently, everything around me is burning the f--k down. Rough week."

Film director Peter Berg shared a video of hills roaring in flames, which he said was "right behind my house" before asking if a blaze adjacent to his home was "a house burning".

In the caption to the terrifying video he wrote: "Eventful evening. Thanks @losangelesfiredepartment I have no words to describe my respect for these men and women." The post was geotagged in the affected area.
