Mira Sorvino Threw Out Half of Her Belongings Damaged by Woolsey Fire

“I sat there in mourning for a past me that I saw in those pics” actress tweets

Actress Mira Sorvino tweeted Saturday that she had to dispose of half of her belongings that were smoke damaged as a result of the Woolsey Fire that affected Malibu, Thousand Oaks and other Southern California regions in November.

“I had to throw out more than 1/2 my belongings, clothes, furniture, books & old photos yesterday due to smoke damage,” Sorvino said on Twitter. “I sat there in mourning for a past me that I saw in those pics. It’s been a hard year & a half! Not good at letting go. But I’m trying to see it as a new beginning.”

Sorvino posted in November that she was astonished at how close she was to losing her home in Malibu, sharing a picture of the charred hillside once she was able to return to her home.

“It was hard to even understand how the fire did not sweep the house, though the air inside is acrid with smoke damage,” the #MeToo activist said on Instagram at the time. “Others were tragically not so lucky.”

Nearly 300,000 people were evacuated when the Woolsey Fire ravaged the Southern California region that began on Nov. 8 and was not fully contained until Nov. 21. The fire burned 97,000 acres, destroyed or damaged more than 2,000 structures, and is believed to have killed three people.
