2017 marks the worst year in history for California wildfires. In October of 2017, 8,400 homes burned in Northern California and 7,500 buildings were destroyed. Then in December, extreme Santa Ana winds and dry temperatures sparked more fires, this time in Southern California. Residents evacuated, grabbing what they could as the Thomas Fire ripped through Ventura County and the Skirball Fire threatened the prestigious neighborhood of Bel Air and the Getty Center. Many celebrities live in both areas. Here’s the list of stars who were affected by the terrifying wildfires.
Caitlyn Jenner’s Roof Flew Off, Dog Ran Away
Although Caitlyn Jenner’s $3.5 million home isn’t in the direct path of the fires that have destroyed many homes, it is right in the path of the 60 mile-per-hour winds that have been whipping through Ventura County.
Jenner went out for a casual dinner amidst the chaos and when she returned, she found that the roof of her home had blown off. Part of the roof landed in the pool while large chunks of it were scattered throughout her property. What’s worse, however, is when she entered her home to assess the damage, there was no sign of her dog Bertha. Jenner had to spend the night with family and returned to her property the next morning to address the damage. Although she feared Bertha had been crushed under the debris, she was found filthy but safe later in the week.
