Hollywood stars evacuate due to wildfire in California

Washington: Hollywood stars including Kim Kardashian West, Alyssa Milano, Lady Gaga, Caitlyn Jenner and more were among the thousands of people who were forced to evacuate their homes due to the Woolsey Fire that is ravaging Los Angeles County.

The blaze that started on Thursday night (local time) had pushed towards Malibu and the Pacific Ocean, prompting evacuations in Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura Hills, and other nearby areas.

American television personality and retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete, Caitlyn Jenner ‘s pad, which was featured on her reality show, sat on top of a ridge overlooking the Malibu beach area — and, unfortunately, it is the same area where the Woolsey fire is burning out of control.

The 69-year-old took to her Instagram and provided updates about her evacuations, writing, “We’re out of the fire zone and are safe. Thinking about all those that are affected and hope you all are safe too.”

Kim Kardashian also posted pictures and videos of the fire on her Instagram story and revealed that she had an hour to pack and evacuate from her home in the Calabasas area.

“Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe,” she wrote.

According to TMZ, the fire has burned more than 14,000 acres so far and forced the evacuation of more than 75,000 homes across Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.

Thousands of people were ordered to evacuate, including stars Kourtney Kardashian, Alyssa Milano, Melissa Etheridge, and Eddie McClintock, among others.
