LA fire has forced Arnold Schwarzenegger and other A-listers to flee their homes and evacuate.
With the wildfires raging through California, almost 200,000 have evacuated their homes. The wind-spurred flames forced several celebrities, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, to flee their houses in the middle of the night. At least five multimillion-dollar LA homes have been destroyed in the wealthiest neighbourhoods owing to the LA fire.
Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was also amongst those evicted overnight.
“If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out,” Schwarzenegger wrote on Twitter.
We evacuated safely at 3:30 this morning. If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out. Right now I am grateful for the best firefighters in the world, the true action heroes who charge into the danger to protect their fellow Californians. #GettyFire
