Celebrity Homes That Have Been Destroyed By The California Wildfires

Two wildfires that both started in November 2018 have raged across the state of California, destroying thousands of structures and scorching the earth along the way. At the time of this writing, The Camp Fire in Northern California has claimed the lives of 44 people, making it the deadliest wildfire in the state's history. Per NBC News, the fire consumed "80 to 90 percent of the homes" in the small residential town of Paradise located in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

In Southern California, the Woolsey Fire has engulfed over 96,000 acres on its fiery rampage through Los Angeles, Malibu, and the surrounding areas. More than 200,000 residents were forced to evacuate, many of those being celebrities who have lost or are in danger of losing their homes. Sadly, let's take a look at the celebrity homes that have been destroyed by the devastation of the California wildfires.

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus lost her Malibu home she shares with fiance Liam Hemsworth due to the wildfires. Luckily, the "Wrecking Ball" singer let her fans know that everything important in her life is safe. 

"Completely devestated (sic) by the fires affecting my community. I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that's all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country (sic) Sheriff's department! If you are interested in getting involved, see next tweet.... Donate $, Time, Supplies I love you more than ever, Miley," she tweeted in a thread. Cyrus then tweeted a few links to places people could donate, including the Red Cross, the United Way, California Community Foundation and others.

Liam Hemsworth also took to Twitter to reiterate how the fire impacted the couple as well as share a photo of their destroyed home (shown above). "It's been a heartbreaking few days. This is what's left of my house. Love. Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also, and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires," he tweeted.

Robin Thicke & April Love Geary

"Our house is somewhere in there. I'm so sad but so thankful that we all made it out safe. Praying for everyone in Malibu, our city is up in flames," model April Love Geary posted on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of Malibu covered in smoke. Unfortunately, the home she shares with boyfriend Robin Thicke and their two children was consumed by flames. "Our house is gone," Geary shared on an Instagram story (via Page Six) with a photo the devastation. After the initial shock wore off, the "Blurred Lines" hitmaker decided to focus on the positive.

"April, Julian, Mia and I would like to thank the courageous firefighters and volunteers," Thicke wrote on Instagram, on behalf of his family. "As we drove to safety, they risked their lives trying to save our home. We are safe and surrounded by family and friends. We thank you for all the love and support we've received and send our love and prayers to everyone affected by the fires. Count your blessings!"

E! News caught up with Thicke as he toured his Malibu property where he stated the family plans to rebuild. "It's funny, you see movies, you'd think there would be one doll left over, or a book, of course, something," Thicke reflected. "It's just rubble. There's nothing left."

Scott Derrickson

"We lost our home, but we are all safe and that's the important thing. Gonna be offline for awhile (sic)," Marvel's Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson tweeted. He took to Twitter the next day to give an update to his fans. "Just a quick update to say that I'm overwhelmed by the incredible outpouring of love and support. Thank you to everyone who messaged me, and for the dozens upon dozens of you who offered us a place to stay. We are blessed and grateful to be safe and so loved," he tweeted.

"I'm not trying to be optimistic about losing literally everything — I'm just not materialistic by nature. To me, it's just stuff. It's harder for my boys, losing items that have profound memory meaning. But this loss and whipsaw change will become a source of growth for all of us," he added. Derrickson later posted the photo above of his sons and what was left of their home. While digging through the destruction, the Exorcism of Emily Rose director luckily found something of sentimental value. "With the help of dear friends, we dug all afternoon in the rubble. Not much left, but we did discover the one thing I most hoped to find: my late father's dog tags. #VeteransDay2018," he tweeted.

Neil Young

After legendary rocker and environmental activist Neil Young lost the home he shares with his wife Daryl Hannah, he wrote a 300-word essay blasting President Trump for his response to the California wildfires. In the tweet, Trump claimed the raging fires were the result of poor forest management and threatened to cut federal aid.

"California is vulnerable — not because of poor forest management, as DT (our so-called president) would have us think," he wrote on his website, Neil Young Archives (per Variety). "As a matter of fact this is not a forest fire that rages on as I write this. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it ... Our temperatures are higher than ever here in our hottest summer on record. 

Young went on to describe the president as "the Denier," and reiterated his claim that the true fight for the future of California is against climate change. He also pointed out that he "lost [his] home before to a California fire," although Variety pointed out that was his "Meeker Mansion," which "burned to the ground in an arson fire" in 1978.

Camille Grammer

Although The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer lost her home, she remained grateful for her family and the brave first responders who helped her evacuate. "Sadly my house couldn't be saved. The courageous firefighters were able to save my cars and personal items recovered from my home. I thanked the fire chief and his team of firemen for all of their hard work," wrote on Instagram, accompanied by an aerial photo (above) of her house engulfed in flames. 

"He took the time to explain what happened and I'm grateful for all of their hard work trying to save my home. Sad we lost our home but grateful that my family is safe. Luckily we quickly evacuated our house yesterday after a patrol car drove up the street announcing mandatory evacuations. I'm grateful for my lovely neighbors and friends who kept me informed and for their help this evening. Thank you all for caring  #woolseyfire #malibu. Special thanks to Fire Chief Rash and his brave team of firefighters."

Shannen Doherty

Former Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed star Shannen Doherty was heartbroken over the loss of her Malibu home. "This place. I got married there. But before that, it's the place @chriscortazzo let me stay in after my dad passed away. It's the place I felt my dad with me. It's gone. Fire has taken it away. I'm devastated by all that's happening. My heart is ripped apart," she posted on Instagram along with a photo from her wedding.

In another Instagram post before she learned about her devastating loss, Doherty revealed that she was out of town when the fire broke out, but her house sitters "had evacuated and gotten themselves and our dogs to safety." She added, "It's looking not likely but I'm so grateful that they people I love are safe and my dogs and horse are safe. I'm grateful for the firefighters putting their lives on the line for all of us."

Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler, star of the cult-classic 300, took to Twitter to show the smoldering ashes of his Malibu home and thank the Los Angeles Fire Department for their bravery. "Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LAFD. If you can, support these brave men and women at SupportLAFD.org," he tweeted, accompanied by the photo above. 

"Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California. I was one of the lucky ones, my home was only partially destroyed. A lot of people lost everything and will have to rebuild from scratch," the Hunter Killer star tweeted, along with a video of himself touring his charred neighborhood. "I am ok and so grateful for all of the well wishes. Please turn your support to those who need it most here, and throughout California. There's a Go Fund Me to help people across the state affected by the fires. Please join me if you can," he continued.

Other celebrities had close calls

While a few celebrities lost their homes in the wildfires, other stars were lucky and only had to experience close calls. "This is my street as of two hours ago praying for the safety of all my malibu fam, grateful to our brave firefighters please stay safe," actor Orlando Bloom posted to Instagram, accompanied by a photo of a raging fire just above the horizon.

"UPDATE: Still evacuated. We've been under mandatory evacuation since Thurs. We're safe. House is still in jeopardy. Still no power. Still dealing with flare-ups," Alyssa Milano tweeted.

"Praying for everyone in California affected by these terrible fires. We have been evacuated for almost 48hrs now and need the angels to keep surrounding our home. Thank you to the brave firefighters who have protected our home so far," singer and fashion mogul Jessica Simpson tweeted.

"I'm worried about my house, but there is nothing I can do. Friends houses have burned. I can't bear the thought of there being no Malibu I've had a house in Malibu since 1972," iconic entertainer Cher tweeted.

"My heart goes out to everyone caught in the fires please stay safe and don't take unnecessary risks. I think I'm about to lose my house and its memories even worse tragically people have died thoughts and prayers with everyone it's been a tough day let's hope it gets better," former One Direction member Liam Payne tweeted.

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian saved the day

"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," Kim Kardashian tweeted.

However, the reality star and her husband, the politically-fluid Kanye West, did more than pray. Per TMZ, the couple hired a "private team of firefighters" that saved their $60 million mansion and "countless others on the block." A few of the neighbors thanked "the Wests for putting a team on the front lines and saving their homes." After successfully helping save her street from disaster, Kim Kardashian thanked the true heroes of the day. "Fire Fighters, I love you and thank you for doing all that you can to keep us safe!," she tweeted.

West took to Twitter to offer comfort to the wildfire victims. "My sincere condolences to everyone suffering from the loss of their homes, loved ones and the unknown certainty of how much damage the fires will have caused," he tweeted. "In light of these situations, I am so inspired by the firefighters and first responders who are risking their lives to do whatever they can to help. They are our true heroes. We must all come together during these difficult times to support each other. May God Bless us all," Kanye added.
