Devastating loss for thousands of families.

Soaps.com is saddened to report that at least 31 people have lost their lives in the California Camp, Woolsey and Hill fires with 228 people still unaccounted for as of Sunday, as well as many animals and wildlife affected. Labeled the most destructible wildfire in California history, The Camp Fire started about 6:30 AM on Thursday November 8 in the proximity of Camp Creek Road by Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon. Powerful winds led to nearly the whole town of Paradise being burned down. The largest fire, The Camp Fire, has destroyed an estimated 6,700 buildings/homes and has burned 111,000 acres across Northern California. The Woolsey fire in Southern California spread to 85,500 acres with the smaller of the two, The Hill Fire, engulfing 4,531 acres.

More than 300,000 people statewide have been forced to evacuate their homes with 170,000 being residents of Los Angeles County, including some soap opera stars. Daytime actors also turned to social media to share how people can help and one Y&R actress who was impacted will make a special appearance on CBS’ The Talk today to share her story…

Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) thanked co-star Jennifer Gareis (Donna) for welcoming her family into their home after having been evacuated. “This is Paramount ranch in Agoura.. not too far from where we live. I used to ride my horse through here and ride bikes by this park and run through the old western town for so many years and now this is what’s left.. so sad to see the devastation everywhere! The poor people and animals! I am hoping everyone stays safe and they contain the fire soon. We are still waiting to see what happens to our neighborhood. Thanks for all the messages. We are safe and just waiting to see what happens with our house. Thanks to all the firefighters and first responders ?? and thanks to my tv sis @jennifergareis and her family for her kindness and letting us stay in her guest house! It’s a cozy temporary home? #woolseyfire #paramountranch #westerntown #drquinnmedicinewoman #westworld #malibumountains #fire #notcontained #evacuated.”

Days of our Lives’ Christopher Sean (Paul) urged everyone to help, “Everyone please help with what you can…” and posted a list of firefighter needs and where to drop them off.

General Hospital alum Vanessa Marcil (Brenda) also posted a way for people to help. “EMERGENCY UPDATE: The @lafdfoundation needs your help. We’re requesting donations at supportlafd.org to provide hydration backpacks for @losangelesfiredepartment firefighters who are working tirelessly to contain the fires across #SouthernCalifornia. Any amount of money you can spare makes a difference.”

Young and the Restless’ Eric Braeden (Victor) shared, “My eldest granddaughter had to evacuate her house this morning bec of rapidly advancing fires! Night before was this terrible shooting close to her school! Traumatic time,” then went on to post devastating photos of her burned house. Tracey Bregman (Lauren) sadly posted her home engulfed as well and stated, “Last picture of my house. Thank God we are all safe. I have no other words. I’m just numb for us all.” CBS Daytime announced that Bregman would be on The Talk today at 2:00 PM to discuss her situation, “The CBS Daytime Family sends our condolences to Tracey Bregman who has been directly impacted by the wildfires in Los Angeles. WATCH Tracey on @TheTalkCBS Today as she tells her story. One of too many who have lost so much. We ❤️ you Tracey!”

Donations to the Red Cross are much appreciated, and if you are local and have reliable transportation, they are lookin for runners this morning to bring supplies to firefighters still on site. Meeting place is at 19040 Vanowen St in Reseda starting at 10am. Headed there now.”

What a whirlwind last couple days. My hearts go out to all the families affected by these fires ❤️.. To all that’s asked: My family and our house survived, barely, but thankfully. We got my mom out of there with her asthma, but my brother and dad decided to stay for a while until the firemen arrived.. they fought the fire in our backyard in Bell Canyon because the fire department were SO understandably swamped to make it in time. By the time the fire engines got there, they said my brother, dad and two neighbors are the only reason our houses were still there. They saved four houses on our street with three pool pump hoses, but as of now dozens of homes in the community were leveled. We went back this morning to put out the last of the embers.. We’re alright but thousands are not. Any love and support to these communities is gladly appreciated. I know we’ll be rebuilding the structures of Bell Canyon for a while, but nothing can destroy the spirit and unity of this amazing community. THANK YOU TO ALL THE FIREFIGHTERS WHO ARE RISKING YOUR LIVES FO SAVE OURS ❤️❤️?? #CaliforniaStrong #WoolseyFire #bellcanyon #Prayers

My family and I lost power to our home last Friday… and were evacuated from our house on Sunday … however, were fortunate enough to return home yesterday. Thank you to ALL the First Responders who risked their lives to save our community. You are appreciated in ways that we could never truly vocalize with just words! To everyone else thank you so much for being part of the #CBSLA & #UnitedWay telethon… it was such a a pleasure to man the phones with Gina yesterday and not only have a chat but accept your very generous donations. And if anyone else would like to make a donation no matter how small or large all you have to is text 2018FIRES to 41444 every penny raised will go to helping Southern Californian low income families that literally lost everything… #cbscares #woolseyfire #LAFD #Heroes #charity #donation
