Meghan Markle's childhood house might be ruined in California inferno
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s childhood home was put in danger as the deadly California wildfires continued to set ablaze anything that crossed their paths.
The wildfires already cost the lives of more than 30 people, and thousands of residents were forced to evacuate their homes.
As for Markle’s former neighborhood of Woodland Hills, it was reported to be less than a mile away from the flames on November 12, 2018.
Many feared that the Duchess’ home was in danger of being engulfed by the unforgiving fires.
At the time, the entire community of Hidden Hills, which is next to Markle’s district, was already requested to evacuate. Around 2,000 locals were forced to leave their homes because of the Woolsey fire – one of the three wildfires reported to devour California.
Police officers and other officials reported that around 57,000 structures were in dangers.
Many businesses started closing when authorities warned people to stay inside their homes since the smoke pollution had increased.
The Mirror also reported that Markle still has close friends living in the area, as well as in Malibu and Calabasas. Many celebrities, producers, and directors are known to have homes in the said areas. Perhaps her friends have already been asked to evacuate as the fires worsened.
Even though Woodland Hills is known as a more urban location, fire officials were still concerned about the vegetation surrounding the neighborhood. The parks and country clubs in the area was under the watchful eye of the authorities.
Markle was a resident of Providencia Street in Woodland Hills for three years when she was born. She lived there with her father, Thomas, her mother, Doria, and her half-brother and half-sister.
