Wildfires are currently raging through Southern California, and one erupted in Los Angeles Wednesday morning, destroying multiple homes in Bel-Air, prompting the closure of the 405 Freeway, BuzzFeed News reports.
Over several days, the fires have burned more than 83,000 acres, destroyed hundreds of homes and forced tens of thousands of residents to evacuate, including celebrities who live in the area.
Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she and her daughter, Luna, were safe.
never thought I’d get to actually play what I thought was a hypothetical game of what would you grab if there were a fire. so far all I have is Luna, some limited edition Oreos and my spike tv award— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 6, 2017
While seemingly tongue-in-cheek, Teigen clarified things with a later tweet replying to a fan.
"Did I say it was funny?" she wrote. "There is a fire raging a few miles from my house, I think I get to decide what I can say about it."

These fires are so scary and I am hoping everyone is ok and praying for the people in those areas and the brave fire fighters and volunteers. My heart goes out to all the poor animals too.— Ruby Rose (@RubyRose) December 6, 2017
Soft thoughts for all affected by the fires here in California. I just had a WRINKLE crew member leave early to tend to her home. Thousands being evacuated. I think of those with no resources. Will RT aid links. https://t.co/eJG5WVA6PB— Ava DuVernay (@ava) December 5, 2017
