California Wildfires Threaten Tanya Tucker’s Home

Tanya Tucker’s residence is one of approximately 500 homes evacuated in Malibu, Calif., as a result of wildfires that have destroyed more than 2,400 acres in the area. Tucker, who was in Las Vegas at the time, said her 18-year-old daughter Presley took their four dogs with her when she left the house Sunday morning (Oct. 21). So far, approximately 1,500 Malibu residents have been evacuated because of the fires which have already destroyed five homes and damaged nine others in the area. Throughout Southern California, at least 250,000 people have been forced to flee their homes because of the wildfires that have destroyed some 200,000 acres. Shortly after Tucker’s daughter left their home, fire helicopters began dropping water on the neighborhood to deter the blaze. “All my stage clothing — boots, belts and wardrobe — is in that house,” Tucker said. “I have so much memorabilia since I just moved from Nashville to Malibu.” Tucker relocated to Malibu in July.
