Miley Cyrus has said she counts herself "lucky" that her partner Liam Hemsworth and their pets managed to escape the Malibu wildfires that destroyed her home and have killed 31 people across California to date. The Wrecking Ball singer shared a message on Instagram Stories on Sunday night, saying that although her house "no longer stands" she is grateful for all she has and urged her followers to support the rescue efforts.
Gerard Butler is another celebrity who has lost his home in the devastating fire, and shared a photo of the wreckage in an emotional post on Sunday. "Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters," Gerard wrote alongside the photo, which showed the shell of his former home and car.

Meanwhile, Robin Thicke’s girlfriend April Love Geary also showed the wreckage of their home, which they managed to escape before the fire hit at the weekend. "Our house is gone," she wrote alongside a photo from the driveway of their Malibu property, adding a crying emoji.
Malibu is home to a number of celebrities, including Cindy Crawford, Ellen DeGeneres and Patsy Palmer, all of whom have shared their shock at the devastation and support to the emergency services.

Some 31 people have already been confirmed dead following the fires, while 200 people are still missing. Emergency services are working around the clock to stop the fires from spreading any further across California.
