California has been ravaged by three devastating wildfires, two in the south and one in the north, which has forced nearly a quarter of a million people to evacuate their homes and has left at least 31 people dead.
Reports state that as of Sunday morning, the fire in the northern part of the state, called the Camp Fire, burned through nearly 109,000 acres of land and only 25 percent of the blaze has been contained by the firefighters yet. While The Hill Fire, located just a few miles away from the California bar shooting, which claimed the lives of 12 people, had burned through 4,531 acres by Sunday, according to PEOPLE.
Reports state that multiple celebrities were also affected by the blaze, although some celebrities including Kourtney Kardashian and Alyssa Milano were lucky enough to have their homes intact in the blaze, others like Miley Cyrus and Gerard Butler found theirs in flames.
Singer Miley Cyrus took to Twitter on Monday to share an emotional message, revealing that she had lost her home in the fire and urged people to donate funds to emergency services battling the blaze.
