My house no longer stands, but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA county Sheriff’s department!”

Robin Thicke, who lives in Malibu with his pregnant wife and two kids, explored the charred remains of his house wearing a face mask as a film crew covered his harrowing experience. He spoke with local firefighters and said that he will see what they can do. He also stated that he will update his social media.
Along with confirming the loss of his home in the campfires, Neil Young, who had previously lost a house in California to a wildfire, lambasted President Trump’s uncalled reactions to the wildfires and spoke on the severity of climate change.
Kanye West and his famous wife Kim Kardashian, who were evacuated last week, have reportedly hired private firefighters to save their homes from the inferno.
The devastation suffered by the common people and the blue collar workers is massive. In Paradise, one of the state’s smallest towns which lost over 95% of its structures, the blue-collar workers will take time to recover. The financial loss and the emotional trauma endured by the common people is also huge. The sufferings caused due to injuries and death of loved ones has increased the anguish among masses.
