The Woolsey Fire in Southern California has burned more than 90,000 acres. Among the rubble are several notable Hollywood sets and celebrity homes. 

Monday, it was confirmed that the wildfire destroyed the Paramount Ranch, a famous set used in classic western movies and shows like Westworld. 

It was also reported that the mansion used for filming the show The Bachelor was damaged by flames. Sources say part of the property that was used by production has been badly burned and the back patio and other outdoor structures have been destroyed, but the mansion is still standing. In the end, they believe the building will be ok.

Celebrities have also been impacted by the tragic flames, causing some to flea their homes. Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian-West and Alyssa Milano are just a few waiting to learn if their houses survived the fire.

Singer Miley Cyrus faced the harsh reality of learning her home had been destroyed. Cyrus, 25, posted a heartfelt tweet saying that she is one of the lucky ones.

Singer Neil Young and actor Gerald Butler also lost their homes to the fire. Butler actually shared a photo of his home in ashes, thanking firefighters for their efforts.

Butler is just one of many celebs encouraging people to help in any way they can. 

Arizona is also taking a stand to end the Woolsey Fire. On Friday, Arizona State Forestry announced that they are sending 41 engines with crews from various cities like Glendale, Globe, Fry and Peoria. The firefighters will be placed where they are needed most and are expected to stay in California for at least 14 days.
