The flames in Southern California spread in the provinces of Los Angeles and Ventura, which started at the end of Thursday and led to one city-wide evacuation from Malibu on Friday.

The historic Paramount Ranch in nearby Agoura Hills burned on Friday, according to the Santa Monica Mountains unit National Park Service. Numerous productions, including the HBO series & WestWest, are included in the Western Town & # 39; of the ranch since Paramount Pictures hired the Old-West style set for the first time in 1927. Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores Abernathy in the series, described the loss if & # 39; creepy & tweaking that they & # 39; so sad & # 39; was about the lost history.

Also in Agoura Hills is the 7,590-square-meter mansion that hosts ABC's reality series "The Bachelor" twice a year. Writer of the Mike Fleiss series tweeted an image of thick smoke in Malibu on Friday, with ABC executive Rob Mills to add that the house was in "serious danger".

In her book "Bachelor Nation," journalist Amy Kaufman described the Tuscan mansion, built in 2005, as "located on about nine acres of land north of Malibu in the Santa Monica Mountains." If the show is not filming there, real estate developer Marshall Haraden and his family occupy the house with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Several celebrities have also posted about their homes in Malibu or other nearby neighborhoods.

"If you are in the evacuation zone, go now."

"Kardashian-West evacuated Thursday, according to her Instagram story of that evening, together with the sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

Actor James Woods used his Twitter account to help people track down their loved ones. He created the hashtags #CampFireJamesWoods and #SoCalFiresJamesWoods to create what he called "electronic notice boards"even spread the word about the five horses in danger, despite the opposing political views of the two actors. (Milano is a prominent Liberal and Woods a decidedly conservative.)

The comedian Patton Oswalt also thanked Woods on Twitter for his efforts: "We can fight politics later," Oswalt wrote to Woods. "You probably saved a lot of lives tonight – human AND animal, thanks."
