It was a devastating weekend of thousands of families in Southern California as wildfires ravaged their homes and communities.
Miley Cyrus was one of those people, who revealed on Sunday that she is one of the many people who have lost their homes in the devastating Woolsey Fire.
She posted the news on Twitter. “Completely devastated 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 all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff’s department!”
With the fires raging in Malibu and Calabasas, a number of celebrities have also lost their homes to the fires, including Gerard Butler, Shannon Doherty, Robin Thicke, Camille Grammer, Neil Young and several others.
Butler posted a devastating photo of what was left of his home on social media.
“Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating,” the “300” star posted Sunday on Twitter, alongside a picture of him standing in front of the remaining rubble. “Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LAFD.”
Shannen Doherty said her “heart is ripped apart” after losing the Malibu home where she married her husband in 2011 to flames.
Camille Grammer posted a dramatic photo of her home engulfed by flames on Instagram. “Luckily we quickly evacuated our house yesterday after a patrol car drove up the street announcing mandatory evacuations. I’m grateful for my lovely neighbors and friends who kept me informed and for their help this evening,” she added. “Thank you all for caring.”
As of Sunday, 260,000 other residents in Los Angeles County and Ventura County have been forced to evacuate due to the inferno. Firefighters from across the state, as well as those from neighboring states, have been working tirelessly on multiple fronts to contain the blazes and combat the destruction inflicted by these horrifying wildfires.
