Ellen De Generes forced to evacuate pets due to California fires

The 5.8-acre property features two houses - the original structure, built circa 1850 (!), and a second structure, built in 2006 - each around 3,000 square feet.

Outside, there are views of the ocean and the mountains; grand gardens, including an olive grove; covered verandas; and, probably the thing that most stood out to DeGeneres, "a first-class equestrian facility".

The ever-expanding Thomas Fire, burning in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, forced Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi to evacuate their new beach side home Sunday, and Rob Lowe to leave his home in Montecito, TMZ and other outlets are reporting.

Wildfires have been raging across Southern California since December 4, with more than 65,000 acres of land being scorched in two days, and the shoe designer is among the people in the footwear industry who recently experienced its devastation.

She also said the White House "extends its thoughts and prayers" to everyone affected by the fires that have been tearing through Southern California.

"Our house is under threat of being burned".


Ellen continued: 'We just had to evacuate our pets'.

The talk show host, 59, took to Twitter on Sunday to tell followers that she, wife Portia DeRossi and their pets had to evacuate their home in Carpinteria, Calfornia, just south of Santa Barbara. "I'm praying for everyone in our community and thankful to all of the incredible firefighters".

Among the homeowners threatened by the ever-expanding Thomas Fire in Santa Barbara County are a number of well-known names.

The small unincorporated community of Montecito is known as a haven for celebrities.

"This is kind of the new normal", Gov.

"I'm proud to be a part of this community".
