The Malibu wildfire, which broke out on November 8, has destroyed more than 176 buildings including the homes of Gerard Butler, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Neil Young, and Tracey Bregman. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Khloe Kardashian, along with 250,000 other people, have evacuated their homes.
Gerard Butler posted a picture of his half-burned house on Twitter yesterday. He was seen wearing a mask while standing in front of a scorched vehicle, presumably parked near the house.
Butler bought this house, located in Point Dume, in 2016 for $6.45 million. Despite the devastating situation, he thanked the firefighters in his caption, “Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit, and sacrifice of firefighters.”
