“I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now,” Cyrus wrote. “My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong.”

“I am grateful for all I have left,” Cyrus added. “Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff's department!”

Cyrus concluded by encouraging her fans to donate money, time and supplies to help those affected by the wildfires, adding, “I love you more than ever, Miley.”

According to HuffPost, the singer purchased her $2.5-million home in Malibu’s oceanside Ramirez Canyon neighborhood in 2016.

The Woolsey Fire is one of three wildfires burning across California. As of Monday, the Woolsey Fire, wreaking havoc in Southern California, grew to 91,572 acres, moving through Los Angeles and Ventura counties and leveling homes of celebrities in Malibu, West Lake Village and Calabasas, ABC News reports.

Approximately 370 structures, including homes, had been destroyed by the Woolsey Fire on Monday, up for 177 on Sunday, according to Cal Fire. The wildfire has left two people dead in Malibu, and as of Monday, was only 20 percent contained.

Other celebrities were also affected by the California wildfires, including Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Neil Young, whose homes all burned in the Woolsey Fire.

Butler, who starred in the movie “P.S. I Love You,” shared a photo of his Malibu home that had been destroyed in the fire on Instagram, writing, “Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters.”

Thicke, according to CNN, posted a statement on Instagram, thanking firefighters who had “risked their lives trying to save our home.”

It's too big for some to see at all,” Young wrote on the Neil Young Archives page on Facebook. “Firefighters have never seen anything like this in their lives. I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another.”
