The rich and famous aren’t safe from the devastation as much of Malibu goes up in flames. Here’s a list of celebrities affected by the California wildfires.

Waiting to Hear the News

The wildfires raging throughout California are taking a devastating toll. People have lost their homes, all of their belongings—and in some cases, their lives.

Like thousands of other California residents, these celebrities have been forced to leave their homes behind. All they can do now is wait to hear if anything will be left for them when they return. Lady Gaga, Cher, Liam Payne, and Iggy Azalea were all forced to evacuate. So were Orlando Bloom, Guillermo del Toro, and national treasure Mark Hamill.

False Alarms

When Charlie Sheen couldn’t reach his father and stepmother after they fled their home on November 9, he panicked. He reached out on social media to find out if anyone had seen them. Martin Sheen was able to reach out with this message: “Emilio [Estevez], Ramon, Renee, Charlie… we’re fine. We’re at Zuma Beach and will probably sleep in the car tonight.”

There were also reports that Caitlyn Jenner’s home had been destroyed. Thankfully, that turned out to be a false alarm. But Kim and Kanye’s mansion is still in the path of the fire.

Up in Flames

Although she escaped with her animal menagerie (and fiancé Liam Hemsworth), Miley Cyrus lost her home in the fire. So did Robin Thicke and newlyweds Neil Young and Daryl Hannah.

Miley wrote on Twitter: “I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong.”

Gerard Butler posted a heartbreaking photo of himself standing in the blackened ruins of his home, which was partially destroyed. However, he made sure to thank first responders for their hard work in containing the blaze and made it clear that he still considers himself lucky, Tweeting: “Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California.”

Bachelor Mansion Survives, Westworld Set Did Not

The house used in The Bachelor reality dating show franchise survived the fires. The Italianate manor escape unharmed, but a private home just 100 feet away was completely destroyed. Unfortunately, one of Westworld’s major sets didn’t fare so well. The “old west” area of Paramount Ranch was used to shoot all of the scenes on Main Street for the HBO series, as well as the show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Almost all of the structures there burned to the ground.
