Martin Sheen told KTTV that he didn’t expect his house would survive the fire. He thanked KTTV’s reporter Hal Eisner for giving him the chance to make contact with his family.
“Emilio, Ramon, Renee, Charlie ... we're fine. We're at Zuma Beach and will probably sleep in the car tonight. We're just fine and hope you guys are, too," Sheen told Eisner.
The wildfire that pushed the Sheens from their home has burned 70,000 acres, destroyed at least 150 homes and forced the evacuation of 75,000 homes, impacting an estimated 265,000 people, according to KTTV’s report.
