Kim Kardashian West and her family were forced from their Calabasas home Thursday evening because of the threat of a rapidly spreading 2000-acre Woolsey Canyon wildfire in Ventura County.
The reality star took to Instagram to share some solemn updates about her family’s leaving following an evacuation order that was issued for many residents in Hidden Hills and Calabasas’ Bell Canyon area.
“Pray for Calabasas,” Kim wrote over an aerial view of the fire that she recorded from the window of a plane and shared to her Instagram story. “Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up and evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe.”
It was one of two videos terrifying Kim Kardashian shared of the sizable blaze, which firefighters in Los Angeles County and Ventura County have been battling for hours
Kardashian also posted a video of numerous fire trucks driving down her street, and assured to share her appreciation for their efforts.
“Fire fighters are arriving. Thank you for all that you do for us!!!” she wrote together with the video.
The Woolsey fire in Calabasas is one of two distinct brush fires that vented on Thursday, along with the so-called Hill Fire in Santa Rosa Valley that shut down the 101 freeway and has blow-out to over 10,000 acres.
The Hill fire lead to the obligatory evacuation of almost 1,200 homes in various neighbourhoods including Camarillo Springs and Dos Vientos, as well as the Cal State University Channel Islands campus and the Point Mugu Naval Base.
