Rob Lowe has a lot of gratitude for the men and women helping to put out the devastating Thomas Fire in Montecito, California.
The 53-year-old actor's home is at risk as the flames have already engulfed over 270,00 acres as of Sunday. As a way of saying thanks, Lowe invited the firefighters in his town to have dinner at his home.
"Thank you to all the crews from all over the country who stood tall and saved my town. #respect #gratitude," he captioned a photo of him posing with the firefighters. "Dinner for new friends at our house."
Prior to the dinner, Lowe shared photos of the fires on Instagram as well as an image of himself in flame retardant clothing using a hosepipe. "Helping earlier today. You do what you can, but when it’s time.. you GO," he wrote.
In addition to Lowe's residence, the fires have also put Oprah Winfrey's home at risk. Showing her gratitude to firefighters, Winfrey tweeted: "God bless every firefighter and their families. fighting 3 weeks straight. still going. Imagine their exhaustion! #ThomasFire"
