Kim Kardashian-West and her family were forced from their Calabasas home Thursday evening due to the threat of a rapidly spreading 2000-acre Woolsey Canyon wildfire in Ventura County.
The reality star took to Instagram to share some somber updates about her family's exit following an evacuation order that was issued for many residents in Hidden Hills and Calabasas' Bell Canyon area.
"Pray for Calabasas," Kardashian wrote over an aerial view of the fire that she filmed from the window of a plane and shared to her Instagram story. "Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up and evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe."
The Woolsey fire in Calabasas is one of two separate brush fires that erupted on Thursday, along with the so-called Hill Fire in Santa Rosa Valley that shut down the 101 freeway and has spread to over 10,000 acres.
The Hill fire lead to the mandatory evacuation of nearly 1,200 homes in multiple neighborhoods including Camarillo Springs and Dos Vientos, as well as the Cal State University Channel Islands campus and the Point Mugu Naval Base.
