"My mom and her partner lost their Malibu home in #Woolseyfire and thankfully, they are both safe."
According to People, Basinger's representative did not comment about the house's condition.
In addition to her mother's devastation, the model went through a harrowing situation in which an officer accused her of looting.
Ireland explained what happened in another tweet:
“Yesterday I spent all day long trying to get back to my place in Malibu to gather a couple of my things before the winds were expected to pick back up.”
“An officer at a back way entrance to one of the main canyons that take you over to Malibu stopped us and refused to let us in because I don’t have my Malibu address on my ID."
Ireland described the officer harshly due to his attitude:
“Not only was he a [expletive], but he had 0 compassion and he literally accused us of being looters and threatened us that we were going to be arrested if we kept giving him trouble.”
She felt that regardless of his duties, some compassion would have been better:
“I understand that he was doing his job, but in times like this when people are losing loved ones and losing their homes, the least you can do is show compassion and be as kind as you can even if you can’t help them."
Police report that they were alerted to over 130 reports of "suspicious incidents. 16 of them were looting reports.
On Monday, officers arrested two men for looting in Paradise Town. They dressed up as U.S. Forest Service workers and tried to enter abandoned homes.
Authorities issued an evacuation warning to Malibu residents around 12 p.m. on Friday.
Since then, the Woolsey fire has covered more than 93,000 acres, of which only 30 percent is contained. Two persons were killed from Woolsey and over 370 buildings destroyed.
The more destructive Camp Fire in Northern California has taken the lives of 42 people. Over 228 persons remain missing and the fire burned down more than 7,100 structures.
Basinger joins the growing list of celebrities who have lost their homes including Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke, and Neil Young.
