California wildfires forces celebrities to evacuate homes

Celebrities were among the thousands of people forced to evacuate as a series of wildfires in Southern California threatening to destroy multi-million homes and buildings.

Lea Michele told reporters that she evacuated her home because she didn’t want to “risk anything.” She added that she packed her bags and went to celebrity stylist Brad Goreski’s house.

“It’s so crazy because yesterday when there were those duel fires, I had such a strong feeling and then when I woke up this morning, thankfully I woke up early for this event, and when everyone was coming to get me ready, they said we gotta go so I just threw my cat in my bag and I left,” Michele said.

Paris Hilton tweeted that her house was evacuated and included a widely shared video of the scene in the Los Angeles area.

“This wildfire in LA is terrifying! My house is now being evacuated to get all of my pets out of there safely. Thank you to all the firefighters who are risking their lives to save ours. You are true heroes!” Hilton tweeted.

Ariana Grande’s mother, Joan Grande, announced her family was also forced to leave their home as the blaze encroached on their neighbourhood. She said it was the “first time” in her life she had to evacuate, adding, “My heart is breaking for all the Californians so sadly affected by the fires!”

Lionel Richie was also impacted by the fast-moving wildfire, announcing he’s cancelling his Wednesday night show at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood because he was “helping [his] family evacuate to a safer place.”

“I, unfortunately, have to cancel my show tonight. I look forward to returning to the stage this weekend and performing for my fans,” the singer wrote on Twitter.

Chelsea Handler said: “Just evacuated my house. It’s like Donald Trump is setting the world on fire. Literally and figuratively. Stay safe everyone. Dark times.” Her tweet sparked anger and controversy.

The home of Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Channel, was also impacted by the fire.

About 200,000 people were forced to evacuate by Thursday as firefighters battled two large blazes, the Thomas Fire and Skirball Fire, ravaging Ventura and Los Angeles counties since the start of the week. The relentless wind-whipped wildfires threatened to burn down multimillion-dollar homes in Bel-Air.

Many Hollywood A-listers expressed their concern and feelings on social media.

Mariah Carey tweeted: Sending love and prayers to all those affected by the fires in California. Be safe everyone! Thankful for our incredible firefighters and rescue-workers #Heroes.”

Kim Kardashian West, who reportedly recently moved into her $20 million home in Hidden Hills in Los Angeles County, tweeted: “I pray everyone in Los Angeles is safe from these fires and THANK YOU to all of the firefighters working so hard to keep everyone safe!”

“Never thought I’d get to actually play what I thought was a hypothetical game of what would you grab if there were a fire. so far all I have is Luna, some limited edition Oreos and my spike tv award,” Chrissy Teigen said. “We are fine and we will be fine. Thinking of everyone else affected and continuing my lifelong intense love of firefighters.”
