The eerie detail found in the ashes of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's destroyed home.

Liam Hemsworth was “heartbroken” to find the home he and fiancee Miley Cyrus shared in Malibu had been completely destroyed by wildfires.

But the Australian actor noticed that among the charred rubble, one item remained intact. And depending on your beliefs, it’s either an eerie fluke or some sort of sign.

In a photo the 28-year-old shared on Instagram on Wednesday, it can clearly be seen that the only thing that survived the fire was the word “love” spelled out in large letters.

“It’s been a heartbreaking few days,” the Hunger Games star wrote alongside the image.

“This is what’s left of my house. Love.”

Liam said that his heart went out to all the others affected by the California fires which raged uncontrollably at the weekend. They have so far displaced more than 220,000 people and destroyed more than 300 buildings. The fire has also killed at least 42 people, with more than 200 still missing.

The Dressmaker actor said he was hopeful his community could come out the other side of this natural disaster stronger.

“I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can,” he wrote in his caption.

“Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger.”

He also thanked emergency services and encouraged people to donate to a fund supporting victims as well as Miley’s charity, Happy Hippie Foundation.

Miley had earlier confirmed on social media that the couple’s $US2.5 million (AU$3.48 million) mansion had been destroyed.

“Completely devastated by the fires affecting my community,” the 25-year-old wrote in a tweet.

“I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely and that’s all that matters right now.

“My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong.

“I am grateful for all I have left.”

The singer and actress thanked firefighters and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for their help in fighting the fires and made an urgent plea to fans to donate money to fire aid and disaster relief organisations.

She and Liam are just two of the celebrities who have focused their attention on helping their community, by using photos of their own destroyed homes to urge people to donate.

Gerard Butler encouraged donations to the Los Angeles Fire Department, while rocker Neil Young used the moment to express his disgust in US president Donald Trump for not doing more about climate change.

“California is vulnerable — not because of poor forest management, as DT (our so-called president) would have us think,” he wrote on his website. “We are vulnerable because of climate change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it.”

Other celebrities, like Lady Gaga, Orlando Bloom, and Gigi Hadid – who have homes in the area that appear to have been spared – posted messages on social media praying for those affected and thanking firefighters.

Kim Kardashian thanked emergency service workers for their efforts in California during her acceptance speech for her family’s award at the E! People’s Choice Awards on Sunday. Kim dedicated the award they received for Keeping up with the Kardashians “to all of the firefighters, the law enforcement and the first responders”.

The Kardashians have, however, been (perhaps, unfairly) criticised for their reported use of private firefighters to protect their home, which less wealthy residents wouldn’t be able to afford.

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, meanwhile, has shared an Instagram post urging the public to donate to several organisations involved with fire relief.
