Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi forced to flee their mansion before it goes up in flames:

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have been forced to flee their beachfront $45 million mansion in California as immense wildfires roar through the state. More than 5,700 firefighters are working to contain the blaze.

The Thomas Fire, now expanded to almost 231,000 acres, has raged through southern California over the past week. The disaster has left a scorch mark larger than New York City and strong winds keep spreading the flames. The fire is 15% contained as of this writing.

In two tweets, DeGeneres told her followers that the couple were evacuating and taking their four-legged friends with them. She also reported that neighbors in her community were helping each other evacuate – with their pets.

DeGeneres and de Rossi’s property has been up for sale for months. The price was recently dropped to encourage buyers, despite being one of the most gorgeous homes you’ll see.

No word yet on whether or not the couple’s home survived.

Our house is under threat of being burned. We just had to evacuate our pets. I’m praying for everyone in our community and thankful to all the incredible firefighters. The live stream is on http://KEYT.com
