Neil Young and Miley Cyrus and more have shared their thoughts with the public having lost their homes to the spreading wildfires in California.

Multiple wildfires in California have raged on across the weekend, engulfing more homes and forcing approximately 250,000 people to evacuate their homes across the whole state.

Miley Cyrus confirmed on Twitter that her pets and fiancé made it out alive, "I am one of the lucky ones." She adds, "My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong."

The singer/songwriter and actress went on to list donation sites and to thank the emergency services.

Neil Young is another musician who has opened up about the wildfires, which have also claimed his home. On his site, Young writes, "FireFighters have never seen anything like this in their lives. I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another."

The three major fires have scorched the picturesque landscape, with the Camp Fire burning 111,000 acres alone (according to The BBC). The Woolsey Fire, which is closer to downtown LA, has already destroyed 85,500 acres.

Tame Impala's Kevin Parker is another musician affected by the wildifires. On the band's Instagram, Parker shared videos of the spreading fires and an image of the Malibu house he was recording in, stating, "RIP to all this gear (and someone’s beautiful house) in Malibu. I made it out with my laptop and the Hofner. My heart breaks for the wildlife".
