Vegan stars Miley Cyrus and Moby have asked fans to help animals who may be 'scared and exhausted' fleeing fires in southern California.
Wildfires have been roaring across the area for five days now - with neighborhoods in areas including San Diego being evacuated.
Almost 6,000 firefights are reportedly working to contain the flames.
While many are worried about the impact on human life, others are also worried about animals.
Both Moby and Cyrus shared a post asking people to be mindful of the impact of the fire on other species.
The post says: "If you live anywhere near the fires, please be aware that wild animals are fleeing the fires and they may end up in your yard.
"The California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection is urging you to bring your domestic animals in at night and let the wild animals pass through.
"Please put buckets of water out for them - they are scared, exhausted, and have also lost their homes - they need to refuel."
