Bruce Willis is catering meals for 450 firefighters tackling wildfires in his adopted home state of Idaho.

Bruce Willis is thanking firefighters in Idaho with free food.

The 57-year-old actor is so grateful to the men and women who risk their lives battling infernos in his adopted home state that he’s buying all 450 of them lunch and dinner.

The RED 2 star, who has several homes in the Sun Valley area, released the following statement to the firefighters:

“Like all of my fellow Idaho residents, I want to extend my most sincere and grateful thanks to the firefighters and first-responders which include the helicopter and airplane pilots who have been flying for day in and day out, who risked life and limb to battle the horrific Beavercreek Fire in Idaho.”

Each person tackling the wildfires will get both lunch and dinner beginning Friday. Bruce is also paying for snacks the firefighters can munch on as they work on other blazes across the region.

The star praised their fearlessness as crews continue to tackle the flames head-on.

“You are the men and women who put your lives at risk to protect ours on a daily basis, but it is at moments like these that your heroism comes to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness,” he continued in the statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight. “On behalf of me and my family, please know that there will never be enough words to express our deepest appreciation for your ever-present dedication and bravery.”

To show their thanks, a team of firefighters made the actor a special water fountain consisting of pipes and nozzles.

Bruce is married to model-and-designer Emma Hemming and the couple have a 16-month-old daughter, Mabel, together.

Before he wed Emma in 2009, he was married to actress Demi Moore from 1987 to 2000.

The pair have three children together, daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
