Amid reports of looting in the Camp Fire evacuation zones in Southern California, P!nk's husband Carey Hart has posted a clear, ominous warning to anyone who intends to prey on the hundreds of thousands who've been forced from their homes by the deadly blazes.

"It’s unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis," the motorcross legend wrote alongside a black and white photo of a dozen masked men cradling handguns and shotguns in front of a "looters will be shot on site P.D.C. Posse" sign.

"While the malibu fires have been burning, some locals have been fighting off and defending their property against the fires," he added. "There have been sightings of looters breaking in to homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into malibu. #DefendYourLand#2ndamendment." 

It was unclear if Hart is in the photo or if he took it.

On Tuesday (Nov. 13), it was reported that authorities arrested six people suspected of looting in the Camp Fire area, where, as of Tuesday night, more than 130,000 acres had burned in a blaze that has killed at least 48 people and destroyed 7,000 homes. Counting the damage and death toll from the Woolsey Fire -- which has taken two lives and burned nearly 100,000 acres -- the current blazes are the deadliest in California's history. 

Among the thousands who've been displace or seen their homes reduced to ash are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth -- who donated $500,000 to fire relief efforts this week -- as well as Neil Young, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Shannon Doherty.
