Nearly a week after the worst wildfire in California’s history broke out, firefighters are still battling its roaring flames, 48 people have been confirmed dead and evacuees are growing more desperate. The deadly wildfires ripping through California has forced hundreds of thousands of residents to evacuate, including some celebrities whose homes have been lost to the blazes. Neil Young, Robin Thicke, Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus are among those whose houses were ravaged by the Woolsey fire raging north of Los Angeles in Southern California, according to the entertainers’ respective online posts.

Butler posted a photo on Twitter of the charred remains of his Malibu home and thanked firefighters for their courage. All of the firefighters fighting the horrendous fires deserve more praise and love than what they recieve. They are putting their lives on the line to help save other families, communities, and even animals. Thinking of you California.
