Kim Kardashian was forced to grab as much as she could in an hour and flee her home Thursday night because of an out-of-control wildfire threatening her neighborhood in suburban Los Angeles.
In a video the reality TV star posted on Instagram Story, she revealed that she had just arrived back at the Hidden Hills compound she shares with husband Kanye West to find that she needed to evacuate due to the Woolsey wildfire, People reported.

“Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe,” the 38-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star wrote.
Kardashian shot the video from her private plane and from her car. “They’re evacuating everyone right now from all of our homes,” she said on the video.
The Woolsey fire broke out around 2:25 p.m. Thursday west of Chatsworth and spread south from Simi Valley.
The City of Calabasas, near Hidden Hills, also issued a voluntary evacuation order for neighborhoods south of Interstate 101. Kim Kardashian’s sister, Kourtney, lives in Calabasas and chose to evacuate.
