Justin Herbert among several Chargers evacuated due to Silverado fire – Press Enterprise

Several Chargers players and staff members were forced to leave their homes because of evacuation orders from the Silverado fire.

Everyone is fine and the team has assisted them throughout the process, a Chargers official told the Southern California News Group on Tuesday morning.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday that he was moved to a hotel because of the evacuation orders. The Chargers play a road game Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

As of Tuesday morning, the Orange County Fire Authority said the Silverado fire, burning east of Irvine, had grown to 11,200 acres and been 5% contained. More than 90,000 residents are under evacuation orders.
