Breaking: Montecito Fire Threatens Celebrity Homes

A blazing inferno in the seaside town of Montecito, CA has destroyed over 100 homes and 2500 acres since last night. Celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe and Kevin Costner own residences there, and the enclave (the site of Heather Locklear’s recent arrest) is known for its million dollar coastal homes.

Oprah’s 45-acre seaside estate is three miles from the heart of the fire, but has not been damaged so far, according to TMZ. She’s reportedly in Chicago, taping her show.

Rob Lowe’s home has remained untouched so far, as well. Despite this, Lowe and his family have reportedly evacuated. Guess the nannies won’t be getting the house in the settlement.
