Wildfires sweeping through the upscale neighborhoods of Calabasas have forced thousands to flee from their homes. And Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were part of that group. Reports claim that the pair left their Calabasas home when a third alarm brush fire sparked up in the area. Other celebs with homes at risk are Jessica Simpson, Katie Holmes, Kylie Jenner, and Mariah Carey. Flames were initially sparked by a car accident when a driver crashed a pickup truck into a utility pole. Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres posted this photo on Instagram, sending prayers out to Portia’s brother and all the firefighters on the scene in Calabasas. Kris Jenner, who’s Hidden Hills mansion is just five miles from Calabasas, posted the same picture with the caption, “Thank you to all the firefighters of Calabasas and surrounding cities who worked so hard yesterday to keep all of us safe. We appreciate you guys so much.” Calabasas is a city of about 23,000 people.
