CINCINNATI -- A home owned by Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer was among those evacuated this week because of the wildfires in southern California.

Palmer said his parents and his brother, Jordan, were among the hundreds of thousands of southern California residents who had to leave their homes because of the fires. Some residents were allowed to return home Thursday.

"I've heard that we're evacuated and I'm waiting to see what happens," Palmer said. 'I'm kind of busy out here. I try to let my wife handle it and take care of everything.

"My folks are out of there, they're out of town, and [Jordan] is safe and away."
