Momenteel woeden in Californië drie hevige natuurbranden die al bijna 80.000 hectare hebben verwoest. Onder meer Paramount Ranch, een westerndorp waar talloze films en tv-series waaronder HBO’s Westworld werden opgenomen, ging in vlammen op.
Door de ramp moesten ook tal van Hollywood-figuren geëvacueerd worden, waaronder regisseurs Guillermo Del Toro en Scott Derrickson en acteurs Alyssa Milano, Rainn Wilson en Lady Gaga. Ook Will Smith en Mark Hamill vreesden dat ze hun huis zouden moeten verlaten.
We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura. We do not have any details or photos, but it is our understanding that the structures have burned. This area is an active part of the incident and we cannot access it. pic.twitter.com/oC4n7KR8ZT

Evacuated last night. Bleak House and the collection may be endangered but the gift of life remains. Thousand Oaks and Agoura are still in danger. Malibu is being evacuated.

We lost our home, but we are all safe and that’s the important thing. Gonna be offline for awhile.

I just had to evacuate my home from the fires. I took my kids, dogs, computer and my Doc Marten boots.
(Husband is in NY. Horses are being evacuated by my trainer.)

My House has been evacuated due to nearby fires in Thousand Oaks. (The pigs & dogs are fine, thank you) Please send your prayers to the people of Thousand Oaks and the victims of the shooting that are now having to evacuate their homes and neighborhoods. Then send them some cash.
