Malibu is on fire and that includes areas of Calabasas and Hidden Hills where many homes of celebrities are in danger. Kim Kardashian announced Thursday night she needed to evacuate and on Friday, it was reported that Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu home burned to the ground. Kim Kardashian shared an update after she and her sisters shared their fears regarding the fires and posted status updates indicating they were praying.
Kim Kardashian tweeted the following.
“I heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment. It doesn’t seems like it is getting worse right now, I just pray the winds are in our favor. God is good. I’m just praying everyone is safe.” ??
According to authorities, things haven’t been getting better and the Woolsey Fire has grown in size. There are reports that certain areas fire hydrants have run out of water and a state of emergency has been declared in several counties including Los Angeles, County.
The latest news says that winds have died down but are expected to pick up again on Sunday.

A number of celebrities have shared their anxiety regarding the California fires on social media platforms. While Hollywood celebrities have the resources to make last-minute evacuation plans, not everyone in California can get out as quickly as needed.
Actor James Woods used his personal Twitter account on Thursday, at the beginning of the fires, to try and connect those looking for loved ones.
He created two hashtags: SoCalFiresJamesWoods and CampFireJamesWoods so those who need information or are looking for people can use the hashtag and share, retweet, and look for their missing friends and family members.
The hashtag campaign has been a success with many people and animals being marked as found.
The California wildfires are in the early stages and some experts have suggested they may burn for more than one week straight. Those who would like to help others in harms way may contact the Red Cross to make a donation.
