Malibu burning: Kardashians, del Toro among celebrities fleeing

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West was forced to grab much of what she could in an hour and flee her home on Thursday night.

After initially filming the flames from the window of her private plane and sharing it on her Instagram Story, she later realized that the blaze was part of the Woolsey Fire, which broke out near her home. She said she landed back home, spent one hour packing and evacuated shortly afterward.

The 39-year-old posted a photo on her Instagram stories of her vehicle trunk packed with bags, captioning the post, "I pray that everyone is kept safe and protected from these fires".

On Friday afternoon, Kardashian West tweeted that flames had hit the property she shares with her husband, Kanye West.

"Here at the CVS I basically bought everything they had in stock", she said. "God is good. I'm just praying everyone is safe", she tweeted out around 2pm PST.

The Woolsey fire began on November 8 near Simi Valley then burned south overnight, jumping the 101 freeway and heading towards the Kardashian family's Calabasas homes and the flames by Friday afternoon hard marched all the way to the coast in Malibu.

Wildfire triggers evacuation order for Malibu
After shuffling schedules for the firefighters who would remain, UFA made a decision to send 11 people and three fire crews. She can be heard in an Instagram clip comforting someone saying "It's going to be okay" as the smoke billows above them.

Minnesota Timberwolves trading Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia 76ers
As I wrote in October , the 76ers needed to be aggressive in Butler trade talks as he reportedly had "eyes for them". Charania is reporting that the Sixers and Timberwolves will have a trade call on Monday to finalize the deal.

Kim only shared on Thursday that she was evacuating the area with her family, and they're safely away from the fire.

Her publicist could not confirm the status of her house, but told Reuters that Jenner was safe.

"I know the fearless men and women are working so hard, tirelessly, for all of us would greatly appreciate it", Khloe said in her story. "I am too nervous with these fires #MamaKoKo", Khloe Kardashian posted on Twitter. My home is in jeopardy but. everything with a heartbeat is safe. Cher tweeted that her friends' houses had been burned, adding that she could not "bear the thought of there being no Malibu".

The Kardashians aren't the only celebrities facing the fires.

Kris Jenner's neighbourhood was also evacuated, but she was in NY at the time watching Kendall storm the catwalk at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. "A voluntary evacuation remains in effect for Calabasas areas south of the 101".

It quickly spread southwest toward Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks, the community still reeling from a mass shooting on Wednesday night, before making its way to the coast.
