The musician is not the only star to pitch in and help out.

Lady Gaga over the weekend visited a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School to help and try and cheer up evacuees. 

"The @RedCross was honored by @ladygaga’s visit to our shelter in Pacific Palisades yesterday. Her visit and her message about the work of our disaster mental health team brings hope and comfort to everyone affected by this disaster," the Red Cross said via Twitter

The fire, which began around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, has burned 96,314 acres and an approximate 435 structures have been destroyed. Two have been damaged, officials said.

Containment is at 35 percent.

Mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect for the cities of Malibu, Calabasas and Hidden Hills and the communities of West Hills, Monte Nido, Gated Oaks and Topanga. Repopulation began Sunday night for Agoura Hills and Westlake Village residents.

The many structures that have burned in the fire include vineyards, historical sites and homes, including residences of those in the industry such as actor Gerard Butler, director Scott Derrickson and musician Miley Cyrus.

Butler on Monday posted a video of him walking about his ravaged neighborhood, remarking that it looked like a "war zone." He also asked for donations to be made to SoCal firefighter foundations. 

More than 250,000 people had been displaced in evacuations.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration to bolster the ongoing emergency response to the major fires burning in Butte, Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

"We have the best firefighters and first responders in the country working in some of the most difficult conditions imaginable," Brown said in a statement. "We’re putting everything we’ve got into the fight against these fires and this request ensures communities on the front lines get additional federal aid."
