Miley Cyrus and fiance Liam Hemsworth are among Hollywood celebrities who have lost homes as deadly wildfires scorched California.
The 25-year-old confirmed on social media the couple’s $US2.5 million (AU$3.48 million) Malibu mansion was destroyed and the “love of her life”, Liam, had safely escaped with their many animals.
“Completely devastated by the fires affecting my community,” Miley 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.
Miley is in Africa shooting a movie and made frantic calls to her father, country music star Billy Ray Cyrus, when news broke California had erupted in flames.
“As it unfolded Miley began calling, we talked it through and I told her, ‘Honey, prepare yourself for the worst’ and unfortunately worst did unfold,” Cyrus told LA TV station KTLA on Monday.
