The raging California wildfire has blown through Malibu, Calabasas, and Agoura—otherwise known as home to many of the rich and famous. The area and many expensive mansions were devastated by massive flames and a thick coat of smoke, forcing hundreds of thousands of residents to evacuate. Here are the stars who were affected.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West evacuated their Hidden Hills home with only one hour to pack their things. Kim posted a photo on Instagram with Khloé's daughter with the caption, "We are all safe and that's all that matters." Khloé also had to evacuate her home and is staying at her brother Rob's place. Their eldest sister Kourtney evacuated her home as well, posting some terrifying photos of the blaze creeping up on her house, but luckily, she informed her Instagram followers, the fire in her neighbourhood stopped and her house is okay.
Caitlyn Jenner was not so lucky, as her Malibu residence burned down. She confirmed on Instagram that both she and friend Sophia Hutchins, and their dogs, are safe. There is no word on Kendall and Kylie's homes, though they both posted photos expressing their sadness.
Orlando Bloom posted a picture of his street, looking scarily apocalyptic, and expressed his prayers for his Malibu community and gratitude for firefighters.
Lady Gaga also evacuated her Malibu mansion, and tweeted an emotional message: "I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones. I’m sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames. All we can do is pray together & for each other. God Bless You."
Neil Young wrote on his website that he had already lost one home to a California wildfire, and "now another," while also criticizing President Donald Trump’s inappropriate reactions to the tragedy and discussing the severity of climate change.
Gerard Butler posted a photo on Twitter of the smoking remains of his Malibu home, thanking firefighters for their bravery.
Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LAFD.
