President Trump on Wednesday expressed his concern for the Californians who have been affected by the devastating wildfires currently plaguing the southern part of the state.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of California’s wildfires. I encourage everyone to heed the advice and orders of local and state officials. THANK YOU to all First Responders for your incredible work!" Trump tweeted Wednesday.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved assistance grants for various fires near Los Angeles. The money will go toward emergency services throughout the region.

First lady Melania Trump also said she is praying for people who have had to evacuate from their homes.

"Thoughts & prayers to those affected by the wildfires in California. Thank you to all first responders for their heroic efforts," Trump wrote earlier Wednesday.
