First of all, our hearts, thoughts, prayers go out to everyone effected by the worst wildfires in California’s history. Tim and I lost just about everything in a house fire, mementos, heirlooms, real clothes from the 80’s, pictures, computer drives, books, and my mind while dealing with less than reputable contractors & Historic Commission. Relieved and glad that no one was hurt in ours.
Despite it all, we are still thankful for the prayers & kindness from friends and strangers.
OK enough about our fire (I could seriously write a book about it!)
Here are some of the experiences shared by some celebrities.
Dave Grohl took some time to help out
On Monday, Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, visited Los Angeles County Fire Station 68 to lend his support to the firefighters battling the devastating wildfires. While he was there, he cooked up some barbecue for everyone.
“It was awesome to get a visit tonight from Dave Grohl of the @foofighters,” the caption reads.
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga, who doesn’t know conditions of her home, stopped by the Red Cross to lend a hand as well. She tweeted:
“I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones. I’m sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames. All we can do is pray together & for each other. God Bless You.”
Miley Cyrus & boyfriend Liam Hemsworth lost their home
“It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house. Love. Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires. I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can. Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger. Thankful for the all the great local guys that helped keep smaller fires out around my property. I love u guys. I love you Malibu. Thank you to all the hero firefighters around California. It’s going to be a journey to rebuild. Stay strong all. To help/donate visit @malibufoundation and @happyhippiefdn”
Camille Grammer (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)
“Sadly my house couldn’t be saved. The courageous firefighters were able to save my cars and personal items recovered from my home. I thanked the fire chief and his team of firemen for all of their hard work. He took the time to explain what happened and I’m grateful for all of their hard work trying to save my home. Sad we lost our home but grateful that my family is safe. Luckily we quickly evacuated our house yesterday after a patrol car drove up the street announcing mandatory evacuations. I’m grateful for my lovely neighbors and friends who kept me informed and for their help this evening. Thank you all for caring #woolseyfire #malibu. Special thanks to Fire Chief Rash and his brave team of firefighters.”
Gerard Butler lost home to Cali fires
“Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California. I was one of the lucky ones, my home was only partially destroyed. A lot of people lost everything and will have to rebuild from scratch. I am ok and so grateful for all of the well wishes. Please turn your support to those who need it most here, and throughout California. There’s a Go Fund Me to help people across the state affected by the fires. Please join me if you can.

Orlando Bloom shared this pic of his neighborhood
And we know you’re dying to know about the Kardashians, Caitlyn lost his/her home but the others so far haven’t. Neil Young lost his home, second one lost to wildfires. He wrote a scathing post about climate change being ignored.
Just remember, even when you have just about everything, it is still painfully depressing and mind boggling to see your memories, mementos, etc. all go up in smoke. So please understand and consider the victim’s thoughts before you say ‘it’s just stuff, it can be replaced’ because most of it can’t be replaced.” “I’m so sorry, can I help get that stinky stuff out of your house” or “Can I do anything?” is much better.
Good luck to all those effected by the recent spat of major disasters. Wishing you the best of luck.
