Neil Young, Gerard Butler, Miley Cyrus Lose Homes to California Wildfires
Between the Hill fire, the Woolsey fire and the state's deadliest ever blaze, the Camp fire, entire towns have been engulfed by the flames and hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes. Several of the 31 casualties so far were killed in their cars as they tried to leave.
Amongst celebrities that have lost their homes in the still-blazing fires are Neil Young, Gerard Butler, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.
Young posted a message to his online archives website, blaming the fires on climate change despite Donald Trump's insensitive declaration that the fires were caused by poor forest management and thus don't warrant additional federal funding in the wake of an emergency.
See the Butler's, Cyrus' and Thicke's own posts below.
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 @LosAngelesFireDepartment. If you can, support these brave men and women at SupportLAFD.org. Link in bio.
Completely devestated 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— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) November 12, 2018

Stars of the HGTV show Rustic Rehab, which renovates home in the now destroyed town of Paradise, have also shared their accounts of the fires. Chenoa Rivera posted a shocking photo, along with an update on her family. They also encouraged those who are able to donate to the fire relief effort.
The Paramount Ranch, where Westworld was largely filmed, was also destroyed by the Woolsey fire.
We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura. We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned. This area is an active part of the incident and we cannot access it. pic.twitter.com/oC4n7KR8ZT— Santa Monica Mtns (@SantaMonicaMtns) November 9, 2018
Others famous figures like Flea, Lady Gaga, Alyssa Milano and Orlando Bloom have evacuated, and remain unsure of the status of their properties.
I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones. I'm sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames. All we can do is pray together & for each other. God Bless You.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) November 10, 2018
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 (@Alyssa_Milano) November 11, 2018
I'm going to rally tonight to receive the @ACLU Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award at the #BillOfRights dinner.
More celebrities still have spoken out against the U.S. president's heartless tweet. See some of those reactions below.
This is an absolutely heartless response. There aren't even politics involved. Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters. https://t.co/DJ4PN26bLZ— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) November 10, 2018
Stop re-enacting your father's coldness toward you. You're not Fred Trump and we aren't 10 year old you. Stop it, you shitty shitty person. Feign humanity. https://t.co/upobfKZgLM— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) November 10, 2018
Honestly thought this one was from a parody account. The city is on fire and people and animals are dying. https://t.co/qjuaSheDJe— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) November 10, 2018
