Camp Fire has been declared the most destructive wildfire in California's history, and is one of the many that firefighters and emergency personnel and working to contain. The fires have ripped through some of the most expensive real estate in the United States, and the images of the multi million-dollar mansions burnt to a crisp are nothing short of shocking. See below for a look the devastating loss that the past week's wildfires have caused:

The damage and human impact has been staggering, especially due to the the Camp Fire, which has charred NEARLY 7,000 structures and making it one of the most damaging fires in California history.

Musicians Miley Cyrus and Rock and Roll hall of famer Neil Young also lost homes in the fire.

"Completely devastated by the fires affecting my community," Cyrus tweeted.

"I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong."

In a statement on his website, Neil Young blasted Trump for blaming the fire damage on “gross mismanagement” of California forests while threatening to reign in federal funding.

Young argues the unprecedented fires aren't the result of "mismanagement" but rather, climate change.

“The extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it,” Young says.

“Our temperatures are higher than ever here in our hottest summer on record. That has not helped. DT seems to be the Denier. (I’m holding back and not using the word liar just because it rhymes with denier)."

Hot, dry winds were expected to whip up the fires burning in both tinder-dry southern and northern California until Tuesday, officials said, while urging residents to heed evacuation orders.

"Winds are already blowing," Chief Daryl Osby of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said Sunday. "They are going to blow for the next three days. Your house can be rebuilt but you can't bring your life back."


Actress Whitney Cummings took to social media Sunday to criticize a winery for not evacuating their exotic animals - including a giraffe named Stanley who has about 46,000 followers on Instagram - after assuring their customers the animals would be removed from danger's way.

"I’m [sic] deleted my understanding caption about Malibu wines/Saddlerock ranch. I didn’t want to speak until i had all the information. Now I do. They had a lot of excuses and i was trying to give them the benefit of the doubt," she posted on Instagram.

"They didn’t evacuate their animals and still won’t. I wanted to be understanding and gracious, but once you treat your animals like this (when you have plenty of money) we simply aren’t on the same page."

She ended her post by appealing to the public to help evacuate the animals, adding that she brought hay and horse feed to them.

Monday morning news footage showed Stanley alive and appearing to be well. He was seen strolling around his Malibu enclosure seemingly unaffected by the fires that tore through the region over the weekend.
