Celebrity Rehab Center Evacuated!

10/22/2007 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that residents at Promises Treatment Center in Malibu have undergone precautionary evacuation because of potential fire danger.
Promises Rehab facility
A spokesperson for the Malibu Fire Department tells TMZ that clients at the famed rehab facility have been moved because the center is on a one-lane road, and evacuating everyone quickly could be dangerous. We're told, as we publish, that the fire is moving east, toward the facility. Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Ben Affleck and other A-listers have all spent time there.

As of this afternoon, the fire has scorched more than 2,400 acres and destroyed at least five homes and a church in the area. Several celebs, including Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Olivia Newton-John, James Cameron, Mark Hamill and Cindy Crawford have been affected, although no word yet on whether any celebrity homes have been lost.

And in case you were wondering, Nobu is still closed.

Anyone who lives in So. Cal especially Malibu should know by now to be prepared for fires. This is an unfortunate part of life living in an earthquake/fire state. I hope the homeowners (both celebrity & non) were prepared and don't be stupid by staying in the home despite orders to evacuate. My prayers go out to them all.

What celebrities are still at Promises? I thought they all completed their rehab and are
back on the streets trying to kill us. Was I wrong? Hope so. I'd rather fight the fire than
one of those cuckoos.
