Rainn Wilson, Alyssa Milano Say They Had to Evacuate Over Wildfires
James Woods, Kim Kardashian, Scott Baio and Kevin Smith all took to Twitter to address the various Northern and Southern California wildfires that have forced many people to evacuate their homes.
Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano and Rainn Wilson are just a few of the stars who took to social media to say they have evacuated their homes due to the multiple wildfires raging and deadly in Northern and Southern California. The blaze that began near Paradise, California has resulted in nine deaths, officials shared on Friday, and has quadrupled in size after leveling much of the Northern California town of nearly 30,000 people.
One of the wildfires forced Malibu residents to evacuate on Friday. And as the blazes raged on Thursday night and Friday morning, many stars have used their social media accounts to share resources and to help spread the word about missing individuals.
Wilson and Milano both took to Twitter to inform their followers that they had to evacuate their homes. After sharing that he had to evacuate due to the fires, Wilson asked for prayers. "Please send your prayers to the people of Thousand Oaks and the victims of the shooting that are now having to evacuate their homes and neighborhoods. Then send them some cash," he wrote. Milano wrote, "I just had to evacuate my home from the fires. I took my kids, dogs, computer and my Doc Marten boots. (Husband is in NY. Horses are being evacuated by my trainer.)"
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian wrote on Twitter, "I can not sleep! I am too nervous with these fires." Kim Kardashian retweeted the post with three praying emojis. The older Kardashian sister also posted a photo after evacuating her home. Posed with her three children, she captioned the photo, "North is always a mood." Kardashian's husband Kanye West also took to Twitter to update his followers that the family is "safe and close." Kim Kardashian later said she "heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment."
Director Scott Derrickson shared that he and his family were safe, but that they had lost their home.
The Western Town at Paramount Ranch, in Agoura Hills, has burned down due to the wildfires. The historic filming location was most recently used on HBO's Westworld. "We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned," the Santa Monica unit of the National Park Service announced on Twitter.
The mansion used on ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is located in an active area in the path of the fast-moving Woolsey wildfire and was also burning on Friday. The back patio was burning with the flames moving towards the house; the lower house, often used as production headquarters, had been destroyed. The Bachelor is currently filming the upcoming season with Colton Underwood, but is not in production at the mansion, THR can confirm, as the show has moved off location at this point. The home is owned by Marshall Haraden and his family, who leave the house twice a year so ABC can come in and film.
Comedy Central's Drunk History was on location at King Gillette Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains and has shut down due to the fires.
In a note obtained by THR, Sony Pictures told employees to stay clear of any area affected by the fires: "All SPE employees in the Los Angeles area are advised to continue following the guidance and safety recommendations of local authorities and emergency management agencies. Your safety and well-being is the top priority. We encourage all employees to take the time and necessary precautions to ensure your safety, working from home if necessary."
James Woods encouraged Twitter users to use the hashtag #CampFireJamesWoods to share the names of people who are missing after fleeing the deadly California Camp and Woolsey Fires. When he receives the names, he shares the information for his nearly 2 million followers on the platform. In addition to sharing the names of missing people, the actor has also been posting resources such as the American Red Cross Safe and Well to help anyone in need. Woods has been active in his efforts since the fire began on Thursday.
"Posting this story in the hopes @jack and @TwitterSupport might develop a model for online volunteers to assist in future disasters. A simple hashtag (we used #CampFireJamesWoods) can become a central bulletin board for those desperate for info," he wrote, tagging Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in the tweet.
On Friday night actor Charlie Sheen posted that he could not locate his parents, Martin and Janet Sheen, who were last located by Zuma Beach. "If anyone has eyes on them, please let me know that they are safe and sound in the middle of this horrific scenario," he wrote.
