As the Woolsey Fires burn through Malibu, Calabasas and stretches of the San Fernando Valley, thousands of people -- including many celebrities -- are left dumbstruck and devastated as firefighters and first responders work around the clock to contain the blaze.

Liam Payne is stunned and sending his thoughts to those forced to evacuate, especially to those who have lost loved ones and homes in the acres ravaged by the fires. He's mourning the potential loss of his home in the area as well: "I think I'm about to lose my house and its memories."

Payne is one of the many artists to be directly affected by the raging wildfires in the counties of Ventura and Los Angeles. Robin Thicke and his fiancée, April Love Geary, documented their evacuation as they left the area on social media, and Lady Gaga, Pink, Cher and many more expressing their concerns and dismay for their neighbors and the massive losses they've experienced in merely 48 hours.

The Woolsey Fire is one of three wildfires currently wreaking havoc in the Golden State, and has forced over 250,000 residents to evacuate as it burns across 70,000 acres.
