UCLA announced that they have cancelled Wednesday night’s game against Montana due to the wildfires in the area.

In a statement, the school said: “The health and safety of student-athletes, staff and fans is our top priority. Due to concerns stemming from area wildfires, tonight’s men’s basketball game versus Montana has been canceled. All other team workouts and practices scheduled for today also have been canceled.”

Nearly 2,000 firefighters have been fighting the blaze, which has scorched more than 80,000 acres in LA and the surrounding hills and neighborhoods in recent days.
