As wildfires sweep across Southern California, celebrities and civilians alike are being forced to evacuate their homes.


Thousands of residents have already fled various California counties for their own safety. Multimillion-dollar homes are at risk of being destroyed, as hundreds of structures already have been. Lea Michele told E! News that she evacuated so as not to “risk anything.” “It’s so crazy because yesterday there were those duel fires, I had such a strong feeling and then when I woke up this morning… and when everyone was coming to get me ready, they said we gotta go so I just threw my cat in my bag and I left.”

Paris Hilton also tweeted about having to leave her house. “This wild fire in LA is terrifying! My house is now being evacuated to get all of my pets out of there safely. Thank you to all the firefighters who are risking their lives to save ours. You are true heroes!” she said. Her post also contained a video of the fire as seen from a highway, that has been highly shared online.

Ariana Grande‘s mother Joan and brother Frankie also added to the news. “For the first time in my life I have had to evacuate my home… my heart is breaking for all the Californians so sadly affected by the fires!” Joan wrote. “We are out & safe. Thank you to @LAFD for getting us up & alerting us to the evacuation so early & efficiently,” Frankie Grande said. “My thoughts & prayers are with everyone affected by these fires. I pray all our homes & families continue to be safe as the fires rage on…” Frankie added.
