It's not every day you see Will Smith giving an update on the fires raging through California via Instagram, but here we are.

The actor, whose home in Malibu is directly in the path of the Woolsey Fire, shared an Instagram video of him inspecting the blaze as it neared his house. As he shows quite clearly in the video, the fire and smoke appears to be heading straight for him.

"We’re probably about 8 miles away from it. We haven’t been told to evacuate just yet but Willow is nervous so she made me go outside and look," explained Smith.

Here's the video from his Instagram Stories.

So far, the wildfires have taken out the Paramount Ranch where 'Westworld' filmed its exterior scenes, Caitlyn Jenner's house, and has seen over 250,000 residents forced to evacuate.

Charlie Sheen took to Twitter for help in reaching his father, Martin Sheen, after the actor was unable to reach him and lost contact during the fires. Thankfully, the elder Sheen turned up - all of places - on local TV news where he reassured his family he was safe.

"This is the worst one I've seen," said Sheen. "We've been here since 1970, and we've been through a couple of them, but I've never seen one like this."

Caitlyn Jenner's house has also burned down, and it's understood that Alyssa Milano, James Woods and Rainn Wilson's houses have also been caught up in the fire. The fires were also near Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's house in the Calabasas, however the fire has since been contained and stopped short.
