LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) - Over the past few days, California has been ravaged by one of the worst wildfires in the state’s history. In Los Angeles alone, the Woolsey fire has burned a path about 20 miles long and 14 miles wide, destroying at least 435 buildings, most of them houses.
Photos of burned homes and businesses have flooded social media, and Hollywood’s elite have been no exception. With some of LA’s most affluent communities affected, stars of TV, film and music have all shared in the devastation.
In Malibu and Calabasas, celebs such as Julia Roberts, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Martin Sheen have all been evacuated.

Action star Gerard Butler was among the evacuees and returned Sunday morning to find his home had been destroyed. The actor shared a photo on Twitter, and went on to thank the LA Fire Department for its courage, spirit and sacrifice.
Completely devestated by the fires affecting my 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. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) November 12, 2018
