Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Caitlyn Jenner, Rainn Wilson and Guillermo del Toro are just a few of the famous names forced to evacuate their homes as the Hill and Woolsey fires broke out late Thursday evening, affecting the Thousand Oaks, Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura and Hidden Hills areas of Southern California.
Charlie Sheen tweeted Friday night that he’s unable to contact his parents — actor Martin Sheen, and Janet Sheen, and is asking any of his followers with eyes on a staging ground near Zuma Beach to let him know they’re OK. Saturday morning,

Late Friday, the elder Sheen told FOX11 that he and his family were fine. “We’re at Zuma Beach. We’re probably going to sleep in the car tonight. We’re just fine and hope you guys are, too.”
“Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson lost his home in the blaze, while many others left because of approaching flames, fueled into Friday by wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour.
We lost our home, but we are all safe and that’s the important thing. Gonna be offline for awhile.

Jenner shared a video on Instagram late Friday, informing her followers that she had been evacuated to a safe house, but the fate of her home was “still up in the air.”
Kim Kardashian tweeted that though the fire had reached her family’s property, it was beginning to be contained and appeared to have stopped.
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 🙏🏼

I just had to evacuate my home from the fires. I took my kids, dogs, computer and my Doc Marten boots.

My House has been evacuated due to nearby fires in Thousand Oaks. (The pigs & dogs are fine, thank you) Please send your prayers to the people of Thousand Oaks and the victims of the shooting that are now having to evacuate their homes and neighborhoods. Then send them some cash.

Meanwhile, much further north in Paradise, California, which was devastated by a separate wildfire, hosts of the HGTV show “Rustic Rehab” shared on Facebook that their family is safe.
Friday afternoon, the official Twitter of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area reported that Paramount Ranch’s Western Town set in Agoura Hills where “Westworld” filmed many of its Main Street scenes, had burned down.
The Woolsey fire doubled in size to 70,000 acres overnight. As of Saturday evening it was 5 percent contained.
Two people have been found dead in the burn areas, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Chief John Benedict confirmed. In addition, Councilmember Bob Blumenfield said in a statement that over 250,000 people have been evacuated from the Ventura County fire areas, and the shifting winds could bring more devastation.
“The strong Santa Ana winds have made this fire unpredictable and the winds are expected to shift today which could mean new areas, including potentially the Western San Fernando Valley,” Blumenfield said.
