Wildfires are continuing to ravage California as they force 200,000 people to flee their homes and threaten celebrity mansions and LA’s Getty Center which houses historic artwork.

Northern California, which has been hit hard by the Kincade Fire, also reported a minor 3.3 magnitude earthquake on Monday just after 1am local time not far from the wildfire that has forced 80,000 residents in that area out of their homes. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the quake.

The state has been plagued by at least nine wildfires since last week with the latest blaze to break out on Sunday near the Getty Center. Flames were seen raging along 405 Freeway near the museum which displays pre-20th century works of art by artists including Rembrandt and Van Gogh.

Celebrities have been fleeing their homes and dramatic footage showed flames rapidly spreading towards the eight-bedroom Brentwood mansion of actor Josh Duhamel Monday. He bought the 8,232 sq ft sprawling property with then-wife Fergie for $5.2million in 2007.

Kate Hudson was seen getting into her vehicle in the upscale Pacific Palisades neighborhood to evacuate early Monday morning as the threat of fire loomed large.

And NBA star LeBron James also evacuated, tweeting: ‘Man these LA (fire emoji) aren’t no joke. Had to emergency evacuate my house and I’ve been driving around with my family trying to get rooms. No luck so far!’
