Palmer's home among those evacuated in 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."

Despite more than a dozen wildfires in Southern California, conditions have improved enough for the Chargers and Texans to still play their game in San Diego. The shifting flames have burned across nearly 600 square miles, destroying nearly 2,000 homes and prompting evacuations from north of Los Angeles, through San Diego to the Mexican border.
