During the 2019 ESPYS, two NFL teams took time to honor the first responders who fought on the front lines against a series of devastating wildfires that hit California last year. The Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs won the ESPY for Best Game for their November 28, 2018, matchup at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum just days after two devastating wildfires on opposite ends of the state were contained. The Woolsey Fire in Southern California charred nearly 100,000 acres in the greater Los Angeles area, claiming three lives and destroying more than 1,600 structures. In Northern California, the Camp Fire was the state's deadliest and most destructive fire in recent history. It killed 85 people, burned more than 150,000 acres and destroyed nearly 19,000 structures.
