Yesterday afternoon, the residents of Malibu city, California witnessed smoke coming out of a hill and soon it turned out to be a wildfire which destroyed many celebrities' homes. Some of the most renowned names of Hollywood including Will Smith, Gerard Butler, Miley Cyrus and others were left devastated after watching their homes burnt down to ashes.
A local resident Soniya Perl told the sources, “My heart goes out to all of my friends that have lost homes. Many people don’t even know if they still have a home to go back to.”
“There are entire canyons where homes are gone. The area around Malibu High School is gone. But Malibu is a powerful community and people will come together to help rebuild,” she added.
Malibu city along with Oak Park, Hidden Hills and Westlake Village have been evacuated. The police force has also blocked the entrance to most of the canyons leading toward the white sands.
Amidst all the hustle-bustle, American model Ireland Baldwin who is the daughter of famous actor Alec Baldwin was accused of looting her own home which was also affected by the Malibu wildfire. 23-year-old model was stopped from returning to her Malibu home as she failed to provide an ID with the Malibu address.
