Wildfires began in California last Thursday. It’s been reported that they’ve become some of the most destructive and deadliest fires in state history.


More than 300,000 people were forced to leave their homes. Actor Gerard Butler was one of those affected by the blaze.

On Sunday, Gerard Butler shared videos and photos of the destruction to his home due to the California wildfires. The images showed how his Malibu mansion had burned to the ground.

Butler titled the footage with the caption:

“Welcome to my home in Malibu.”

Butler wrote:

“Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LosAngelesFireDepartment. If you can, support these brave men and women at SupportLAFD.org. Link in bio.”


The image that accompanied the caption showed the actor standing in front of the rubble of his house. Butler isn’t the only celebrity who’s experienced the outcome of the wildfires.


“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Camille Grammer and singer Robin Thicke both lost their homes. Grammer wrote in a post:

“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 captain and his team of firemen for all of their hard work.”

The wildfires are estimated to have burnt down more than 180 homes. Calabasas, Malibu, Agoura, Topanga, Hidden Hills, and West Hills are also in the line of fire.


California is currently battling with the Woolsey fire, the Hill fire, and the Camp fire. Other celebrities who’ve had to leave their homes include Lady Gaga, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, and Will Smith.


In response to the fires, President Donald Trump tweeted that “gross mismanagement” was responsible for the devastating California wildfires. He wrote on Saturday:

"There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor.”

His posts received backlash from firefighters' associations, politicians, and celebrities. The president also threatened to cut federal aid.
