Caitlyn Jenner‘s Malibu house and the mansion that serves as the set for long-running reality series The Bachelor are among the dozens of properties destroyed in one of the worst blazes to hit Los Angeles in recent memory.
The 14,000 acre Woolsey fire, as it is known, has claimed the lives of five people, and forced total evacuations of Malibu and Hidden Hills, and residents have also been ordered out of Topanga Canyon, as flames burn out of control in populated areas.
According to reports in Variety, the lower house on the Bachelor property has been destroyed, while flames have reached the back patio of the main house, and the fire continues to advance. Rob Mills of the ABC network says that the mansion is in “grave danger”:
Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, a well-known and widely-used filming location that has featured in shows like Westworld, Weeds and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, has also reportedly been destroyed by the fire.
Earlier today, Kim Kardashian tweeted that the fire had reached her and Kanye West‘s property in Hidden Hills, but she later said that the flames appeared to have died down, and expressed her gratitude to fire fighters:
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 ????????— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 9, 2018
Fire Fighters, I love you and thank you for doing all that you can to keep us safe!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 9, 2018
Disney CEO Robert Iger shared a photo taken from the window of his office with a plume of smoke rising over the hillside:
Lady Gaga shared an Instagram story this morning indicating that she had evacuated her Malibu home, and Scott Derrickson, the director of the film Doctor Strange, Tweeted earlier today that he is safe but his house has been destroyed:
We lost our home, but we are all safe and that’s the important thing. Gonna be offline for awhile.— Scott Derrickson (@scottderrickson) November 9, 2018
Caitlyn Jenner said in an Instagram post earlier today that she was “safe and sound” and unsure if her home was still standing, although multiple outlets are reporting that the beach-side property has been destroyed by the fire.
It is estimated that a total of 157,000 people have been forced to evacuate so far from Malibu and surrounding areas.
