A handful of A-listers, like Chelsea Handler and Chrissy Teigen, have reported that they have been evacuated from their homes.
The first fire broke out in Ventura County on Monday, and new fires have continued to break out in many parts of of Southern California. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from fires thus far, according to NBC News.
