Celebrities including Kim Kardashian West, Rainn Wilson and Melissa Etheridge are among the thousands forced to flee their homes as fires continue to threaten Malibu, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks.

Kardashian shared aerial video of the unsafe Woolsey Fire, urging her 120 million followers to pray for those affected by the blaze near her family's compound in Calabasas. 'Just landed back home and I had 1 hour to pack up and evacuate our home. "No Calabasas tonight", Kourtney wrote in an Instagram Story which featured a boot filled with luggage.

"They're evacuating everyone right now from all of our homes", she said in the video as she watched on from her vehicle.

After Kim Kardashian revealed she had just an hour to evacuate her Hidden Hills home, her sister Khloe tweeted last night that she couldn't sleep over the fires. "I pray everyone is safe", Kim wrote in another post.

The Los Angeles Fire Department issued a mandatory evacuation for many residents in the Los Angeles area as the fire continued to burn out of control late Thursday night.

Stars including Trey Songz and Alyssa Milano were also forced to evacuate due to the fire.

He also urged his fans to help out with relief efforts. "I need an evacuation update please".

According to the city of Calabasas' Twitter, The Woosley Fire has "grown to over 2,000 acres with 0% containment".

Woolsey is the smallest of the three, but grew at an alarming rate Thursday afternoon, authorities said. More than 5,700 buildings in total were destroyed in the 2017 fires; architects are still figuring out how to rebuild, and in a way that keeps homes safe from likely future wildfires.

A second, separate fire, the Hill Fire, was also spreading rampantly Thursday, but had reduced in size Friday and eventually settled into the footprint of a 2013 fire, according to officials.
