Several celebrities evacuated their homes Wednesday after a new blaze erupted near Bel-Air in Los Angeles.
Actress Lea Michele told Entertainment Tonight she fled her West Los Angeles house at 5:30 a.m., only to walk the red carpet for a "Women in Entertainment" breakfast a few hours later.
"Everything's OK," the starlet said, adding that she's staying with celebrity stylist Brad Goreski.
Some celebrities took to social media to reveal that they had fled their homes or were ready to leave at a moment's notice, including heiress Paris Hilton and singer Lionel Richie.
"Just evacuated my house," talk-show host Chelsea Handler wrote. "It's like Donald Trump is setting the world on fire."
The Skirball Fire was also nearing a handful of A-listers' mansions, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, Maria Shriver and Heidi Klum, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday morning. Reports have yet to confirm whether the aforementioned celebrities' homes survived the onslaught of fire.
The fire, which broke out just before 5 a.m. Wednesday, crackled over 150 acres as of Wednesday afternoon. The fire shut down Interstate 405 where it intersects Mulholland Drive in Bel-Air.
