Kim Kardashian, along with many other A-listers like Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus, were affected by the wildfires in California this week.


Kim, her sisters, and their mother attended the People's Choice Award this week, and Kim used the opportunity to speak about the tragedy.

She admitted that it's been a tough week for her family and that their hearts are broken "from the horrific shootings and those who have lost their lives and homes."


She added: "As horrible as this has been, it’s been amazing to see the resilient spirit of everyone involved and the heroism of those risking their lives on the front lines."


She said that action was necessary, and that "no form of help was too small." If there's one thing Kim learned, is that humanity cannot face devastation alone:

Our country is stronger when we come together, and we cannot face devastation alone. We must continue to reach out and help each other in these trying times.


The KUWTK star was returning from a business trip when she spotted the blaze from her plane. The family had only one hour to pack their belongings and evacuate their home.

She kept her followers up to date with what was happening and said on her Instagram stories that the firefighters have arrived:

"Firefighters are arriving. Thank you for all that you do for us!!!"


She wrote in another post: 'I pray that everyone is kept safe and protected from these fires. No Calabasas tonight.'

So many other residents weren't as lucky, like Miley Cyrus and Gerard Butler who had their homes burnt to the ground.


As of this week, the Woolsey fire had reduced nearly 20,000 acres to ash and was only 20 percent contained.

More than 40 people have lost their lives to the blaze, and approximately 210 residents are still missing.

Santa Rosa Valley east of Camarillo has been burning as well, with flames spreading towards Simi Valley near Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks.
