Woolsey Fire engulfs Caitlyn Jenner's 3,500 sqft house, destroys parts of the Bachelor Mansion
Many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Will Smith took to social media to share devastating images of the damage caused by the fire so far
A massive fire that broke out in Southern California is burning through the upscale beach resort of Malibu which is a home to many Hollywood stars. Most members of Kardashian-Jenner-West family, who have houses in the area, evacuated their houses and took to Instagram to inform their fans about their safety.
In a video posted by Caitlyn Jenner on Instagram, she said that she and Sophia Hutchins are safe and sound. However, Jenner’s 3,500 square feet house was destroyed in the flame, reported TMZ.
Likewise, Kim and Kanye evacuated their 15,000 square-feet estate in Hidden Hills on Thursday night. Kim later posted a picture of them saying they're safe.

Kim later took to Twitter to update the fans about the current situation: "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's sister, Khloe took shelter in Kendal Jenner's home and informed about her safety.
Apart from Jenner’s property, the Bachelor Mansion, located at 2351 Kanan Ranch, too suffered from the wildfire and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the mansion’s back patio is believed to have been burned. 'Bachelor' franchise producer Mike Fleiss, tweeted at 10 am on Friday, 'Pray for Malibu— and #TheBachelor Mansion...' before the mansion suffered the flames. His tweet wasn't taken well by the people to which he responded in another tweet:
What part of “pray for Malibu” confuses you idiots. I live in Malibu! My heart is broken. Go fuck yourselves!— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) November 10, 2018
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga’s mansion near Malibu was also seen surrounded by thick smoke as the wildfire took over the beach side and moved towards Oxnard. Will Smith too took to Instagram expressing concern that his house might get hit by the flames as it continues to spread.
According to the Daily Mail, Will said, "I'm going up to a higher place to take a look out at the fire. We're probably about eight miles away from it," he said at the time. "We haven't been told to evacuate just yet, but Willow is nervous, so made me go outside and look and make a Daddy assessment." Will showed his house and continued, "Our house is there," he panned the camera to show the fire, "the fire's right there. That is very scary. We are prepared to evacuate as soon as we get the word."
Smith also asked people to evacuate the zone, "If you are in the evacuation zone, go now."
Walt Disney studio was also caught in the chaos and CEO Robert Iger tweeted a picture of the frightening view from ABC/Disney headquarters in Los Angeles.
Until now, there have been no reports of any casualties. However, a concurrent wildfire in Northern California has killed nine people and 35 are missing.
