Her stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian West, the resident of an upscale neighborhood in Calabasas, where she lives with her husband, Kanye West, rushed to her home in Hidden Hills to gather her belongings and evacuate. She later posted a photo from onboard her private jet that showed raging fires lurking beneath.
Alyssa Milano, a Hollywood actress lately known for her #MeToo activism, was also forced to evacuate, apparently in a rush. Milano said that she grabbed her kids, dogs and Dr. Martens boots while leaving several concerned tweets about the fate of her five horses.
“Horses are finally safe. My children are safe. My home is in jeopardy but… everything with a heartbeat is safe. Thank you all for your concern,” she tweeted on Friday.
Lady Gaga fled her home early in the morning. An Instagram photo she made shows plumes of thick smoke heading towards her estate.
Actor and producer James Woods, a pariah among his Hollywood peers because of his strong support for Donald Trump, has been actively helping coordinate search and rescue efforts via his Twitter – even reaching across party lines to offer Alyssa Milano help in taking her horses out of harm’s way.
She needs help with five horses. It was previously reported that her horses had been evacuated, but she says that did not happen. Please contact her at @Alyssa_Milano to get her location or use my hashtag #SoCalFiresJamesWoods This is a serious request. https://t.co/R7krd0Wfbg

Actor Orlando Bloom took to Instagram to post a harrowing photo of the blaze approaching his home.
Many celebrities expressed concerns about their homes as the fire crept within several miles. Cher tweeted that her friends’ houses had been burned, adding that she could not “bear the thought of there being no Malibu.”
Rapper Iggy Azalea struck a similarly frantic tone, tweeting that she “was genuinely concerned” by the flames encroaching on her Calabasas home.
Scores of other celebrities, including Will Smith, Kardashian West’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe, actors Rainn Wilson and Rob Lowe posted updates on the fires sweeping through the state.
