Actor Rob Lowe offered firefighters battling the destructive Thomas Fire in Southern California a home-cooked meal, posting on Instagram this week a photo of the gathering of his "new friends."
The blaze has been blamed for two deaths, destroyed at least 750 homes and charred at least 272,000 acres to become the second largest wildfire in modern state history.
Lowe has been chronicling the fire’s path on his Instagram account beginning Dec. 5 when he posted a video of a hillside in Ventura County covered in flames.

Weeks later, the blaze is 60 percent contained, but still burning.
Lowe, who has been praying for Santa Barbara, looked on as the fire got closer and closer.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of the firefighters, his home is still standing.
"Thank you to all the crews from all over the country who stood tall and saved my town. #respect #gratitude," the actor wrote on Instagram.
In a gesture that’s simple, yet powerful, “The Outsiders” actor provided the firefighters a home-cooked meal inside.
“Dinner for new friends at our house,” he wrote.
