Ireland Baldwin claimed on Sunday she was accused of “looting” while gathering her belongings from her home in Malibu as the Woolsey Fire ravaged the area.

The 23-year-old model described the incident in detail in a series of tweets. Baldwin, the eldest daughter of actor Alec Baldwin, claimed a police officer confronted her as she tried to enter her home and wouldn’t even let her onto the property.

“Yesterday I spent all day long trying to get back to my place in Malibu to gather a couple of my things before the winds were expected to pick back up,” the model tweeted.

“An officer at a back way entrance to one of the main canyons that take you over to Malibu stopped us and refused to let us in because I don’t have my Malibu address on my ID.”

She continued writing: “Not only was he a d—, but he had 0 compassion and he literally accused us of being looters and threatened us that we were going to be arrested if we kept giving him trouble.”

“I understand that he was doing his job, but in times like this when people are losing loved ones and losing their homes, the least you can do is show compassion and be as kind as you can even if you can’t help them,” Baldwin also tweeted.


Baldwin also revealed that her mother, 64-year-old actress Kim Basinger, lost her home in the wildfire, one of many wreaking havoc in California.

More than 75,000 homes in Los Angeles and Ventura were ordered to evacuate as the blazes intensified over the weekend and on Monday. At least 42 people have died and 200 others are missing as of Tuesday afternoon.

The Hill Fire has also caused massive damage in California near Thousand Oaks, where 12 people were killed in a mass shooting at a bar last week.
