Wildfires engulfed the famous Sepulveda pass region near Hollywood over the weekend. The raging flames have forced many celebrities from their homes in search of safety.

Many famous celebrities shared their experience on social media.

Basketball legend Lebron James of the Los Angeles Lakers tweeted about the widespread damage of the Getty fire:

James later found shelter.

Arnold Schwarzenegger (TERMINATOR) also tweeted:

Fashion designer Rachel Zoe’s post shows social media users the intensity of the Getty fire.

The Getty fire, named for the famous art museum in the area, rages on the southwest corner of Los Angeles and forced officials to shut down the infamous 405 freeway.

Many of the Californian fires, both the southern and northern parts, are caused by the Santa Ana winds that upset debris and spread embers.

Last year, the tragic Woosley fire destroyed many homes and Hollywood sets, injured several people and took lives just before the Thanksgiving holiday.

As fires to continue to pop up in the Hollywood region and northern California, please keep the first responders and those affected in your prayers.
