The devastating California fire will go down in history as one of the most terrible disasters of 2018. Overall, the wildfire claimed 80 lives, destroyed over 14,000 structures, and over 900 people are still unaccounted for.
We are finally resettling after the #woolseyfire had us evacuated for over a week. I’d like to thank the tremendous support from friends around the world and the @losangelesfiredepartment who fought pitched battles to save us. Please donate to @lafdfoundation to support these fine men and women. This picture was taken by our neighbor 5 days ago.
Thousands of people were desperately fighting to save themselves and watched their homes burn, while praying for their loved ones and neighbors.
My friend got this video off the Next Door app. It’s about 2 miles from me by my son’s old middle school. Imagine this firestorm for miles and miles. If you didn’t see it you can’t describe it. I’m in awe of the fire fighters and first responders courage and bravery. My friend took the other pics around Oak Park, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks. It’s just so awful. #woolseyfire #TOStrong #805strong
Many celebrities also lost their houses and shared terrifying videos of the wildfire overtaking residences.
One such famous people was the legendary actor Sam Elliott. Fortunately for him and his family, they were able to save their home.
Loving tribute from Sam Elliott's daughter
Elliott's daughter, Cleo Rose, took to Instagram to honor everyone who fought to save their family house, and it looks like the famous actor himself played a big role in it. Cleo Rose posted a photo of Sam with a brave fireman in front of a firetruck, showing how they worked together.
The actor's daughter also added touching words thanking everyone for their bravery and praying for those who are still dealing with the disaster's aftermath:
I am forever grateful to the amazing firefighters, our gardener Juan and his son Johnny, and especially my dad for saving our home. But it’s hard to rejoice when so many have lost so much. My hearts are with you all. #bucketbrigade#woolseyfire #malibustrong
