Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Other Celebrities Affected by the California Wildfires
Not even the rich and famous have been spared the devastation of the Woolsey Fire currently raging through swathes of Southern California. Woolsey is one of three wildfires ripping through the state since late last week, and part of an alarming increase in the frequency and severity of such fires that experts are attributing directly to climate change. News broke over the weekend that parts of the famed Bachelor mansion had been destroyed by the blaze.
Others in the entertainment industry have had to either evacuate their homes or, tragically, have lost their homes altogether. Many are taking to social media to report updates on their safety while issuing well wishes to others in the area.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
On Sunday night, Cyrus confirmed via Instagram stories that the house she shares with fiancé Liam Hemsworth “no longer stands.” “My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now,” she wrote. (Photo via @MileyCyrus/Instagram)
UPDATE: My house is still standing. I’m on my way to bring firefighters water and food.

Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California. I was one of the lucky ones, my home was only partially destroyed. A lot of people lost everything and will have to rebuild from scratch. I am ok and so grateful for all of the well wishes. Please turn your support to those who need it most here, and throughout California. There's a Go Fund Me to help people across the state affected by the fires. Please join me if you can. gofundme.com/cause/californiafires
