Californian communities are still reeling from the ongoing devastation of the area’s extensive wildfires. Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus are the latest celebrity victims of the fires; both stars have lost their homes to the raging flames. Since the fires began, more than a quarter of a million locals have been evacuated, fleeing their homes in order to seek safety from the blaze.
The fire is the deadliest in the state’s history. It has claimed 42 lives and destroyed over 6,700 structures. 8,200 Brave firefighters are battling the flames, according to Northern Californian officials. On Sunday, Gerard Butler tweeted an image of himself in front of the wreckage of his now-demolished home. “Heartbreaking time across California,” Butler wrote. He also expressed his gratitude for the “courage, spirit and sacrifice” of the many local firefighters who continue to tirelessly work to extinguish the wind-driven fire.
Miley Cyrus also took to her social media pages to urge people to donate to the cause. Both the singer and her boyfriend, actor Liam Hemsworth, made it safely out of her home. “That’s all that matters right now,” Cyrus wrote on her Twitter page. “My house no longer stands but the memories shared with my family & friends stand strong.” Other famous faces, including Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian, evacuated their homes.
