Miley Cyrus and Gerard Butler Lose Houses To California Wildfire

The recent California wildfire shook the entire entertainment industry as many big names own houses in the area where the fire unleashed its wrath. With everyone in the area asked to evacuate, many were waiting to hear if their house had become victim to the uncontrollable fire taking over the Hidden Hills area in California. While some houses managed to stand high through the traumatic experience, such as Kim Kardashian, others were not so lucky. Singer Miley Cyrus and actor Gerard Butler were amongst the few that completely lost their home to the raging fire. It even left filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s house partly damaged.

Cyrus took to her Twitter account on Sunday to give condolences to the victims of the tragic event writing, "Completely devastated by the fires affecting my community. I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and love of my life made it out safely and that's all that matters right now.

"My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family and friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff's department," Cyrus wrote.
The singer even urged her fans and followers to donate resources and supplies to firefighters in an effort to help them combat such situations.
 
"All I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff's department... Donate $, time, supplies. I love you more than ever," Cyrus added.

Butler also released a statement saying that this is a "heartbreaking time across California".

"Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters," Butler tweeted.

Filmmaker Guillermo del also talked about his house being affected by minor smoke damage saying,
"Toro Bleak House (I am told this morning) seems to be fine. Just minor smoke damage. I am aware about how much this fire has taken, how much has been lost - this is humbling and a blessing." The wildfire has been spreading through Northern California since last week and has unfortunately ruined many houses as well as displaced several people and animals. Our prayers go out to the victims of the fire.
