Thousands have been forced to flee their homes for safety as a combination of high winds and low humidity have caused two brush fires to spread rapidly, CNN reports. One fire has been named the Woolsey Fire and covers 7,5000 acres of land within Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The Woolsey Fire has caused over 30,000 homes to evacuate, CNN reports. The second has been dubbed the Hill Fire and spreads over 10,000 acres in the Newbury Park area — just blocks away from the Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a mass shooting on Wednesday.

Among the stars affected include actress Alyssa Milano who took to Twitter to let her followers know that she has evacuated her home.

 “I just had to evacuate my home from the fires. I took my kids, dogs, computer and my Doc Marten boots.”

“The Office” star Rainn Wilson was also affected.

“Please send your prayers to the people of Thousand Oaks and the victims of the shooting that are now having to evacuate their homes and neighborhoods,” Wilson tweeted. “Then send them some cash.”

“Bones” star Eddie McClintock was forced to leave Old Agoura.

“Things just got real,” he wrote. “Damn.”

“Thank you to everyone for the well wishes,” he added an hour later. “We have evacuated our home, and have found a hotel in West Hollywood. So much respect for these firefighters. They are a rare breed. Sending out love and safety to all those effected.”

Reality star Kim Kardashian West had just flown back to her Hidden Hills home when she learned that Calabasas was under threat from the Woolsey Fire. After sharing photos of the fire from the seat of her private jet, the 38-year-old mother of three told fans she had one hour “to pack up and evacuate our home.”
