UPDATED: Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Rainn Wilson and Melissa Etheridge are among the thousands forced to flee their homes as fires continue to threaten Malibu, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks.
Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu house has burned down, according to TMZ. Many other Hollywood figures such as Ellen Pompeo, Cindy Crawford and Marcy Carsey live in the area.
All of Malibu has been ordered to evacuate, which is home to numerous celebrities and Hollywood executives.
Lady Gaga posted on her Instagram story on Friday afternoon that her Malibu estate was evacuated earlier that morning.
“Pray for Calabasas,” Kardashian West wrote on an Instagram story. “Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe.”
Kourtney Kardashian also posted about the emergency on her Instagram story, writing, “I pray that everyone is kept safe and protested from these fires. No Calabasas tonight.”
Kardashian West later updated on Twitter that, while the flames hit her Hidden Hills home, the fire there appears to have been contained.
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 🙏🏼

As of Friday morning, more than 20 million people from Southern California to Northern California were under red flag warnings due to several wildfires across the state.
Will Smith posted several videos to his Instagram Story about the fire, saying that his family home was about eight miles away. “That is very scary,” he said. “We are prepared to evacuate as soon as we get the word. If you are in an evacuation zone, go now.”
Wilson tweeted that he had been forced to evacuate, and that his pigs and dogs are OK. He also asked for prayers for the victims of the Thousand Oaks shooting, noting that the same area is now being affected by the wildfires.
Guillermo del Toro evacuated from his property, where his large collection of horror memorabilia is stored.
Evacuated last night. Bleak House and the collection may be endangered but the gift of life remains. Thousand Oaks and Agoura are still in danger. Malibu is being evacuated.

MGM TV chairman Mark Burnett and his wife, producer-actress Roma Downey, were among the Malibu residents who heeded the call for evacuations. Downey posted a photo of billowing smoke shortly after 9 a.m. and said she was leaving her home off the Pacific Coast Highway with her two dogs in tow.
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.
