By Saturday, that list had grown to include the likes of director Guillermo del Toro, Cher, Martin Sheen, pop singer Liam Payne, and many others.

Kardashian West said that she was forced to evacuate her Calabasas, California, home due to the looming threat the fires posed.

"Pray for Calabasas," Kardashian West wrote on an Instagram story. "Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe."

Thousands of residents were forced to evacuate as firefighters worked to contain the blazes. As of Friday morning, more than 20 million people were under red flag warnings across the state.

On Friday afternoon, Kardashian West tweeted that flames had hit the property she shares with her husband, Kanye West.

Kardashian West's sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, also had to leave their homes.

"I can not sleep! I am too nervous with these fires #MamaKoKo," Khloe Kardashian posted on Twitter.

Alyssa Milano wrote on Twitter that she evacuated as well, and after initially believing her horses to be in safe hands, later expressed concern for their safety.

"If anyone can get 5 horses out the fire please help me," she wrote.

The horses were saved, Milano later said. As of late afternoon on Saturday she was still waiting to hear the fate of her home.

Singer Lady Gaga was also among the evacuees, sharing a series of photos on an Instagram story.

"Sending my prayers to everyone today," she wrote on one photo.

"Shape of Water" director del Toro said he evacuated Thursday night. His non-primary residence, a well-known museum of creepy art and memorabilia called Bleak House, was also in the fire's path, he said.

"Bleak House and the collection may be endangered but the gift of life remains," he wrote on Twitter.

Singer Cher said is also among those who is worried about her home, which is in Malibu.

"I can't bear the thought of there being no Malibu. I've had a house in Malibu since 1972," she wrote on Twitter.

Actor Mark Hamill and his family safely evacuated their home, which is "dangerously close" to the fire, he said. He added that he was "rooting for our #FearlessFirefighters in their battle vs #MeanMotherNature."

Musician Iggy Azalea also wrote on social media that she was "genuinely concerned" about her residence.

Late on Friday, actor Charlie Sheen sent up a flare of concern on social media over his inability to reach his parents, Martin and Janet Sheen.

Hours later, a reporter from the local Fox station located Sheen around Zuma Beach.

"There's little chance that our house survived," Sheen said in an interview. "We haven't lost any lives, so we've got that to be grateful for."

On Saturday morning, Payne said his home was also in the fire's path.

"I think I'm about to lose my house and its memories," he wrote on Twitter. "Even worse tragically people have died. Thoughts and prayers with everyone. it's been a tough day let's hope it gets better."

Firefighters in California are contending with three major wildfires, the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, the Hill Fire in Ventura County and the Camp Fire in Butte County, the latter of which has killed nine people.
