Several celebrities have been forced to evacuate their homes due to the wildfires in California today. These fires started breaking out on Monday due to extremely dry weather conditions. They were fueled by gusty Santa Ana winds, which are expected to continue plaguing Los Angeles and Ventura counties through Friday.

On Wednesday, December 6, the Skirball Fire ignited, affecting several residences in Bel Air. The fire started near the ever-busy 405 Freeway, which was shut down, and Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood, an area that many celebrities call home. As of 7:40 a.m., the Skirball Fire had blazed through 50 acres. CAL Fire has not posted a more recent update, but many believe that fire has since spread.

Below is a map of the Skirball Fire.

Celebrities who have not evacuated may own property in these fire zones, and while they may not be living in these homes at the present time, they still stand to lose everything.

According to reports, the Bel Air estate of Rupert Murdoch located at 1050 Moraga Ave. has been consumed by the fire.

Celebrities who live in the area and may be forced to leave their homes (or may be in danger of losing their homes) include Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards, comedian Kathy Griffin, Harrison Ford, Jennifer Garner, Maria Shriver, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mel Gibson, Demi Moore, Sean Penn, Tom Hanks, Rob Lowe, Janet Jackson, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and several others.

Below are some accounts from other celebrities who have already evacuated.

“Just evacuated my house. It’s like Donald Trump is setting the world on fire. Literally and figuratively. Stay safe everyone. Dark times,” comedian Chelsea Handler tweeted on Wednesday.

“[I’m] totally fine. I live with [my stylist] Brad Goreski and [his husband] Gary Janetti now. Honestly, thank God for this event this morning because I got up at 5:30 and everyone came to the house. And they’re like, ‘We need to leave.’ So I threw my cat in the bag and left and got ready at Brad’s, thank God,” The Mayor star Lea Michele told Entertainment Tonight after evacuating her 4-bedroom home located in West Los Angeles.

“Due to the devastating California Wildfires, and helping family evacuate to a safer place, I unfortunately have to cancel my show tonight. I look forward to returning to the stage this weekend and performing for my fans,” Lionel Richie wrote on Twitter.

“I’m in NYC. My brother is getting ready to evacuate my house. This is literally my exit off the freeway. Please stop what you’re doing a say a quick prayer that this fire and all the fires in so cal right now get contained immediately. Pray for the firefighters,” comedian Anjelah Johnson wrote as a caption to a shocking Instagram photo.

“This wild fire in LA is terrifying! My house is now being evacuated to get all of my pets out of there safely. Thank you to all the firefighters who are risking their lives to save ours. You are true heroes,” Paris Hilton recently tweeted.

Absolutely horrifying that some celebrities are so narcissitic that they want the public to know THEY (because they’re so important???) are evacuating. OMG shut up already you selfish cry babies. People have died and been seriously injured and all you care about is your million dollar nanny, maid, personal assistant run homes? FU losers. Some of the most deranged disgusting people on the planet. Seriously. And Cheslea Handler needs to be put on a psychiatric hold. Or find some new medication. Try HALDOL AND THORAZINE to keep you fkg stupid mouth shut you idiot woman.

Good for the hypocrite liberals. Let them wallow in their own shit now. Karma is a bitch you know. As long as their animals are safe and the brave heroes that are fighting these fires are safe. As far as I’m concerned these spoiled Hollywood liberals deserve this.
