ICYMI, there are several wildfires happening in South California and it’s been forcing thousands of residents out of their homes.
It’s gotten so big that the Skirball Fire located near Bel Air has caused several celebrities to pack their bags and seek shelter elsewhere. Notable stars like Paris Hilton, Lionel Richie, Chrissy Teigen and more took to Twitter, stating that they’ve decided to leave their homes while firefighters continue to battle the flames. Lionel Richie even had to cancel one of his shows to make sure his family safely evacuated.
Due to the devastating California Wildfires, and helping family evacuate to a safer place, I unfortunately have to cancel my show tonight. I look forward to returning to the stage this weekend and performing for my fans… https://t.co/tRMXiPOqUp

Chrissy Teigen in pure Chrissy Teigen fashion cracked a joke, relating the fires to one of those “What Would You Grab First In A Fire”. She hasn’t mentioned John but we’re sure he’s fine.
never thought I’d get to actually play what I thought was a hypothetical game of what would you grab if there were a fire. so far all I have is Luna, some limited edition Oreos and my spike tv award
