Former NBA player Andrei Kirilenko was among those who lost their home to this fire.

Jennifer Tilly was among the lucky one’s, tweeting out:

Evacuation order lifted. Back at the house. It is unscathed. Thank you everybody for your concern and support. And thanks to the brave firefighters who worked around the clock to get the blaze under control. #SkirballFire

An apartment building and around two dozen homes were either completely destroyed or damaged by this fire while other fires in and around the Los Angeles area have destroyed hundreds of other structures.
