Ireland Baldwin says a police officer accused her of being a looter when she tried to return to her home in Malibu.

The model wrote on Twitter that she attempted to return to her home “to gather a couple of my things” in the midst of the multiple wildfires raging in California – but an officer refused to let them through because she doesn’t have a Malibu address on her ID.

“Not only was he a d—, but he had 0 compassion and he literally accused us of being looters and threatened us that we were going to be arrested if we kept giving him trouble,” she continued.

“I understand that he was doing his job, but in times like this when people are losing loved ones and losing their homes, the least you can do is show compassion and be as kind as you can even if you can’t help them.”

The Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station, which also serves the city of Malibu, didn’t respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.

Baldwin also revealed that her mum, Kim Basinger, and her mum’s partner “lost their Malibu home” in the Woolsey Fire: “Thankfully, they are both safe.”

The death toll from California’s fires has risen to 44, with thousands of homes destroyed in Malibu and Northern California. The Woolsey Fire alone has burned about 150 square miles in the hills around Los Angeles.

Many celebrities have been affected by the blaze – and some have even shared photos of their own homes, either in flames or completely destroyed.
