Kim's sister Kourtney, who lives nearby, also chose to evacuate though she was not under a mandatory order to do so.

The reality star also retweeted tweets from The Los Angeles Times and LAFD Fire Talk that included more information about the wildfires.

California wildfires set several neighborhoods ablaze and forced residents to evacuate their homes late Thursday evening, marking yet another instance of climate-related threat to California's landscape and architecture.

However, she later tweeted, "F-k!" I'm raiding your pantry @kendalljenner'. "Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home".

"They're evacuating everyone right now from all of our homes", she said in the video as she watched on from her auto.

"Pray for Calabasas", Kardashian wrote on Instagram Stories. However, she learned upon landing that the flames were from the Woolsey Fire, not far from the compound she shares with husband Kanye West. "I pray everyone is safe".

'Fire fighters are arriving, Kardashian-West, 38, said.

She said she'd temporarily taken up in sister Kendall Jenner's home, while the supermodel was stomping down the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway in New York City. "Saying prayers and thanking all of the fearless firefighters who risk their lives for us".

Kardashian shared aerial video of the risky Woolsey Fire, urging her 120 million followers to pray for those affected by the blaze near her family's compound in Calabasas.

The 2000-acre Woolsey Fire is now burning in Ventura County with officials reporting zero containment, per the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
