Caitlyn Jenner’s home burned down in California wildfire
Jenner told her Instagram followers yesterday in a video that she is “safe and sound” after she was evacuated from her home as the fire continued to spread.
Also featured in the video was her 22-year-old girlfriend Sophia Hutchins, who said they were safe and “that’s all that matters.”
Caitlyn Jenner moved into the home in 2015, and shortly afterwards it served as the backdrop for the now famous Vanity Fair photoshoot and story in which she came out as trans.
CNN has reported that the fire is the most destructive in the state’s modern history, and it has wiped out much of an entire town.
Kim, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian have also been evacuated from their homes, as well as other high-profile figures including film director Guillermo del Toro.
A quarter of a million people have been evacuated from their homes across the state as fires spread. Almost 7,000 structures have been destroyed in Northern California alone, including 80 to 90 percent of the homes in Paradise.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump blamed the wildfires on the “gross mismanagement of the forests” in a tweet today.
“Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!” he added.
Gay icon Cher tweeted yesterday that the fire was “not far away” from her home, and said she was “afraid.”
“Kinda numb. So many homes lost mine is just one home. I’d rather work on something,” she added.
In a follow up tweet, she said: “I’m worried about my house, but there is nothing I can do. Friends houses have burned. I can’t bear the thought of there being no Malibu I’ve had a house in Malibu since 1972.”

Caitlyn Jenner made headlines recently after she decided to officially withdraw her support for US President Donald Trump last month.
“Believing I could work with Trump and his administration to support our community was a mistake,” Jenner said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post.
She also said that she would strive to learn from her mistakes and to move forward.
Jenner followed up by donating more than $50,000 to four LGBT+ charities in Arizona.
