A wildfire burning in California has engulfed some 1,600 acres—and a celebrity's home. The so-called Hill Fire raging in San Luis Obispo destroyed a ranch owned by Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki on Monday, reports TMZ. Galecki, who primarily lives at another location, was not present at the time, his rep tells CNN. In a statement, Galecki says he's "so very relieved no one has been hurt." He adds living with the constant threat of fire "may seem crazy to some" but "our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile." The fire was 60% contained on Tuesday night. (More fire stories.)
