Several Famous Sets And Celebrity Homes Have Already Fallen Victim To The California Wildfires
CBS Evening News

As the Woolsey Fire burns throughout Southern California, several Hollywood homes and historical sets have been put in danger, if not already destroyed. The fire, which blew south from Ventura County over the 101 freeway early Friday morning, had begun assaulting Malibu and the surrounding area over the weekend.

The homes of many celebrities are in danger from the flames, but people are evacuating and getting to safety.





Many buildings have been lost. The homes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer, singer Robin Thicke, actor Gerard Butler, and director Scott Derrickson have all been reported to be consumed in the flames.

Paramount Ranch also succumbed to the flames, taking with it many sets used throughout the years. The national park hosted a "western" town and sets that were used in TV Shows like Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and Westworld, and movies stretching as far back as the 1932 horror movie The Island of Lost Souls.

Luckily, no one was using the park that day, so no lives have been reported lost there.





California wildfires have been devastating the last decade due to drier conditions and high winds that allow flames to spread more quickly than they can often be put out. The state has filed for FEMA assistance, but the request is pending. However, due to the words of the President, some are questioning if the state will even receive federal funds to help.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

We have light at the end of the tunnel.
