The Devastating Aftermath of the Malibu Fire

Some celebrities have lost their homes in the fires, including Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler and Kim Basinger.

Lady Gaga, Khloe Kardashian, Sandra Bullock, Ellen DeGeneres and many more Hollywood stars are doing their part to help those affected by the destructive California wildfires.

There are three massive fires burning through parts of the state: the Camp Fire (Butte County, in Northern California), the Hill Fire (Ventura County) and Woolsey Fire (Los Angeles and Ventura County). The latter has directly impacted many celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler and Kim Basinger, who have all lost their homes due to the destruction.

As of Tuesday morning, the Woolsey Fire has destroyed more than 96,000 acres and 435 structures, according to The New York Times. The wildfire is still only 35 percent contained.

Stars are doing their part to aid victims, firefighters and animals that have been affected by the wildfires. Gaga visited a Los Angeles shelter over the weekend to raise the spirits of victims from the Woolsey Fire. The "A Star Is Born" actress urged survivors to seek out mental health services in the wake of many of them losing their homes.

"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star Khloe, who was evacuated from her Calabasas home, went to CVS Pharmacy to purchase water bottles, eye drops and granola bars for the firefighters. The Good American founder shared her trip on her Instagram Story Saturday and encouraged others to donate as well.

"Here at the CVS I basically bought everything they had in stock," she said. "I bought as many waters as I could, but they still have waters here, but if you guys can drop off whatever you can."

"I know the brave men and women are working so hard, tirelessly, for all of us would greatly appreciate it," Khloe continued. "Just do whatever you can, even if it's one bottle of water, one container of eye drops, one granola bar, anything, I know they would appreciate it."

Ellen announced on her show Tuesday that she donated $100,000 to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation.

"It has been a very difficult week here in California," she said. "There was a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks last week, where 12 innocent people lost their lives. I just wanted to send my love to everyone in the community. My family lives there. It's horrible and so to the friends and family of those people, we all send love."

Similarly, Bullock also donated $100,000 to the Humane Society.

Animals

I’m feeling desperate in how to help during these fires, so I’m gonna list a few amazing animal rescue organizations that I feel are on the front lines and could really use our funds in any amount! Here’s the first one! 21 dogs from the @westvalleyanimalshelter have been transported to the @pawsforlifek9s prison dog training program for temporary housing in order to alleviate overcrowding at the city shelters, due to the devastating LA fires. We don’t want to see these dogs go back to the shelter. Please consider opening your home to foster, adopt or donate! Contact email PawsForLifeK9@gmail.com #pawsup (will leave donation link in bio for a few days) #amazingpeopledoingamazingthings ALSO REMEMBER, any organization you choose is the RIGHT choice! Everyone needs our help right now 💫

I went rogue and went to check on Stanley the giraffe myself. There were a lot of rumors and i didn’t want to be contributing to untrue gossip. I don’t know enough about exotic animals to know if them choosing not to move him was the right choice, but for now he is safe although the conditions are terrible air quality and windy. They are trying to build a barn for him for the night because it burned down. The best thing you can do to help is have as much hay delivered as you can to Malibu Wines/Saddle Rock Ranch or bring some if you live in the area. They lost all their structures, but all the animals are alive right now. I was frustrated that they didn’t evacuate all the animals days ago, but again it’s easy for me to say given i wasn’t there and the fires came in fast. Everyone I spoke to was kind and doing the best they could. I’m sorry I was so aggressive with you guys both in person and on social media. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you did what was best for your animals and humans but in the future I’m offering my services to help with a better evacuation plan and any resources you currently need. Let’s all just stick together right now and deal with everything else later.
