Lady Gaga visits evacuation center to comfort folk who, like her, fled their homes ahead of wildfire


She famously sang Til It Happens To You in 2015.

Lady Gaga certainly could relate to that message when she turned up at a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School in Los Angeles on Sunday to support evacuees of the devastating Woolsey fire.

The 32-year-old hitmaker and actress was herself forced to flee her home on Friday after authorities issued an evacuation order covering all of Malibu.

Gaga told the crowd: 'I extend my love ... I know we do not know each other, but I love you. This is an emergency, but you are not alone.'
She encouraged everyone to take advantage of mental health counsellors on the premises, and to 'share your stories and talk to each other during this time.'

The Star Is Born actress, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, reportedly spent about 90 minutes at the shelter.

She took photos, handed out gift cards and even sang to a 98-year-old woman who had been evacuated.

As Gaga put it: 'Let's keep the faith, together.'
Gaga's home has reportedly survived the flames so far, but it's obvious the danger of the Woolsey fire is taking an emotional toll.

There's no doubt her time and words were greatly appreciated and helped lift spirits.

The fire has burned more than 91,500 acres and is now 20 per cent contained, according to a Monday morning update from Cal Fire.
Fire officials now estimate that at least 370 structures have been destroyed by the blaze, which started Thursday afternoon in the hills south of Simi Valley.

However, that total will change as officials have completed only about 15 per cent of the overall damage assessment, so far confirming 44 structures were destroyed.
