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.

We can only hope Sean Penn's house will burn down. Then he can leave the US and be happy elsewhere.

Well, the place could use a make-over. It looks like a motel decorated with too many thrift store bargains.

Celebrity or not rich or not no one deserves to have their home to go up in flames this is really sad. But it goes to show that money isn't everything the sad part is most of these homes probably don't have fire insurance.

Hollywood burns to the ground, and the rest of the Country roars with laughter.

And now, Rehab is disrupted. When will it end?

You failed to mention the Animal Hospital that was destroyed at the same time as the Church.
People can't wait to take their large animals out until the last minute. The animals are just as susceptible, if not more so, to the smoke as we are.
Anyone who evacuates, must take their pets with them!
