Kourtney Kardashian, Lea Michele and More Share Pics From California Wildfires
Kourtney Kardashian is reacting to the "terrifying" wildfires plaguing Southern California.
The 38-year-old reality star was one of many celebrities who took to social media to share pics and videos from the fires, which have torn through homes and neighborhoods, forcing thousands to evacuate their homes.
"Insane," she shared via Instagram Stories. "The fire jumped over the freeway to homes. These fires are terrifying. Does anyone know how we can help in LA?"
Lea Michele shared a similar pic, writing, "This is so scary" with a cry face emoji.
The first massive brush fire spread through parts of Ventura County on Tuesday, largely fueled by strong Santa Ana winds. USA Today reports that a new wildfire broke out overnight in Los Angeles in the Sepulveda Pass, where the San Diego (I-405) Freeway cuts a path through the mountains to connecting West Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. The fire was near UCLA and the exclusive Bel Air neighborhood, home to many celebrities. The winds are expected to last until Thursday.

The fast-moving blazes have already affected TV and film production. Mike DeLorenzo, president of Santa Clarita Studios in Santa Clarita, California, tells ET that he lives near the studio and was not permitted by the firefighters to get any closer than 2 ½ miles from his own home Tuesday evening. They are concerned about the changing winds in his neighborhood that could seriously threaten his safety, "and they wouldn’t budge," he said.
NCIS is one of the shows that operates on another location nearby that's owned by Santa Clarita Studios. DeLorenzo confirmed to ET that they evacuated their cast and crew on Tuesday. However, a rep for the show told ET they are currently in production on Wednesday and "everyone is safe."
Additionally, a rep for HBO confirmed to ET that they had shut down production on Westworld on Tuesday, and will resume filming "as soon as it's safe to do so." Evan Rachel Wood, who stars as Dolores Abernathy on the series, Instagrammed about the smoky conditions in Santa Clarita, where Westworld is filmed.
DeLorenzo says that S.W.A.T was the only show in production on Tuesday, on the main lot. He tells ET they can often have up to 17 productions happening at the same time in all of their properties.
