Southern California has been devastated after wildfires have continued to blaze through Malibu and Calabasas. Many celebrities have been evacuating with plenty sending prayers to the community and messages of gratitude to the firefighters battling the Woolsey fire that has spread over 70,000 acres. But former football player Hank Baskett took his appreciation for firefighters a step further and pitched in to help, according to his ex-wife Kendra Wilkinson.
“The kids and I are so proud of @TheHankBaskett for going out and helping put out fires around Calabasas. He saved many homes without the people probably even knowing. Great job Hank!” Wilkinson tweeted on Nov. 10. Wilkinson was among the more than 200,000 people who fled in the Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
The reality star and her and Baskett’s two children, Alijah, 4, and Hank, 8, evacuated their California home on Thursday, Nov. 8. After thanking her ex for his service, she shared a video on her Instagram story of their kids fooling around on their hotel bed. “2 days evacuated,” she captioned the clip.
