All the Celebrity Homes Destroyed by California Wildfires

The Woolsey Fire is still ablaze across the Los Angeles area and is not expected to be contained until at least Thursday, according to Cal Fire. Since sparking last week, the massive flames have brought utter destruction to more than 93,662 acres of land, including some areas of the state dozens of celebrities call home.

Hollywood’s elite were among the thousands of people forced to evacuate their homes after the fire spread across neighborhoods including Thousand Oaks, Oak Park, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, West Hills, Simi Valley, Chatsworth, Bell Canyon, Hidden Hills, Malibu and Calabasas.

Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West, who live in Calabasas with their three children, were forced to evacuate their home due to their fire. Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Jessica Simpson, Tori Spelling, Orlando Bloom and several others also had to leave their homes.

There were some celebrities whose homes were partially or completely destroyed by the flames. Actor Gerard Butler shared a photo of an area of his Malibu compound, which was “partially destroyed” by the fire. “Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California,” Butler wrote in a Twitter post on Sunday. “Inspired by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LAFD. If you can, support these brave men and women at SupportLAFD.org.”

Singer Robin Thicke’s home was destroyed by the fire. His girlfriend April Love Geary took to Instagram to share images of the charred residence while writing, “Our house is gone.”

Thicke thanked officials for all their hard work trying to keep the neighborhood safe. “As we drove to safety, they risked their lives trying to save our home,” he wrote.

Miley Cyrus also lost her home to the fire, writing on Twitter she was “completely devastated” by the damage the fires have done to her community. “I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now,” she wrote. “My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left.”

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Kelsey Grammer’s ex-wife Camille Grammer posted a picture of her house engulfed in flames. “Sadly my house couldn’t be saved. The courageous firefighters were able to save my cars and personal items recovered from my home,” she wrote on Instagram. “I thanked the fire chief and his team of firemen for all of their hard work. He took the time to explain what happened and I’m grateful for all of their hard work trying to save my home. Sad we lost our home but grateful that my family is safe.”

Neil Young wrote on his website that his home was scorched. The singer fired shots at President Donald Trump, who blamed the state’s forest mismanagement for the fires. “California is vulnerable—not because of poor forest management, as DT (our so-called president) would have us think,” Young wrote. “As a matter of fact this is not a forest fire that rages on as I write this. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it… Our temperatures are higher than ever here in our hottest summer on record. That has not helped. DT seems to be the Denier. (I’m holding back and not using the word liar just because it rhymes with denier.) It really is time for a reckoning with this unfit leader. Maybe our new Congress can help. I sure hope so.”
