AceShowbiz - Woolsey wildfire is currently blazing in southern California and the flames have spread throughout Malibu, reaching the mansion used as the home of ABC's "The Bachelor". According to reports, the estate's back patio and a section of the house has caught fire, but thankfully, no one is present at the time it caught on fire.
It's said that the production on the house has ended a couple weeks ago. "Production is not using the house anymore. Filming finished a couple weeks ago, and they have been traveling internationally finishing Colton’s season," a source said to Us Weekly.
"The part of the house that was used for the production offices has burned down," a second insider revealed. "The whole back house is burned down and it traveled up to the backyard."
Another source adds that the main house "will be saved" by firefighters. However, a second structure of the house, which is located the Agoura Hills area of Los Angeles County, is "completely destroyed."
Mike Fleiss, series creator and producer, took to Twitter to share a picture of a thicket of smoke rising from nearby hills and ask for prayers for Malibu and the mansion.
The wildfire forced the neighboring to be evacuated and they were threatened they would be arrested if they tried to go back to the area. Among those who evacuate were Kim Kardashian, Lady GaGa, Alyssa Milano, Rainn Wilson, Denise Richards and Guillermo del Toro.
"Fire is now burning out of control and heading into populated areas of Malibu," the city advised residents at 12:27 P.M. "All residents must evacuate immediately."
The wildfire has grown to over 14,000 acres since it started on Friday, November 9. The flames also caught filming locations across the devastated communities including The Western Town at Paramount Ranch, the historic filming location that was most recently used on HBO's "Westworld" and has been featured in "American Sniper", "Norbit", "The Love Bug" and "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer".
