"Pray for Calabasas. Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe," she wrote on her Instagram stories. "Fire fighters are arriving. Thank you for all that you do for us!!!"

The force of the wildfire has resulted in mandatory evacuations along a swath of Southern California, including a community still reeling from the devastating impact of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday, which claimed 12 lives.

She was one of the numerous celebrities who shared images and videos of the fire and evacuations to social media.
