At least 31 people have died during the deadliest inferno California has seen in over 85 years.

Two fires in California have wrecked havoc on the communities of Paradise (Camp fire) near the Southeastern Sacramento Valley and Malibu (Woolsey fire) in Southern California.

Music mogul Dame Dash seriously lucked out as the Woolsey fire flames dodged his home over the weekend. Dash gave an update to his followers early Monday morning revealing that his family was forced to evacuate but were thankful that their home was miraculously left unscathed.

“At the end of the day we did what we had to do and got outta there and I just knew the house burned down cause we saw the flames….and I was ok with it because everything I love was safe…yesterday we found out that every house in the neighborhood burned down but ours… a miracle!,” Dash wrote. “You really have to appreciate every moment and live life to the fullest…I feel for every person that lost a house…our day could have been so much different…our life…thank you to everyone that checked in Were good and my house is good appreciate everything and everybody! #staytuned”

According to CBS News, the Camp fire blaze has destroyed more than 6,700 structures, most of them homes. Governor Jerry Brown has asked President Trump to declare a  “major disaster declaration.”

In Southern California the Woolsey fire torched 91,572 acres, forcing 170,000 people to evacuate.

More than 200 people remain uncounted for according to a report by The New York Times since the fires began on Thursday.

On Saturday, critics and firefighters across the nation blasted Trump after he tweeted he fires were caused due to “poor forest management,” calling Trump’s assessment severely false and insensitive.

Several celebrities shared updates on their evacuation status over the weekend.
