As the smoke has dissipated, the tally of celebrity-owned homes damaged and destroyed in the Woolsey Fire is growing.

The priciest manse known to have been damaged was the Paradise Cove compound of Laurene Powell, widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book. Powell paid $60 million for the beachfront property in 2014 and has sunk millions more into expanding and upgrading its grounds. The extent of the damage isn’t clear.

So far, the most architecturally significant home destroyed was Frank Gehry’s Tin House, which was owned by Sid Bass, a billionaire who made his fortune in oil. Bass bought the 1969-built home for $15 million in 2015 from actor Patrick Dempsey and then spent another $4 million on a ranch next door that also burned down in the fire.

Other notable homes destroyed include Gerard Butler’s rustic-esque Point Dume compound, Neil Young’s 17.6-acre ranch in the hills, and reality star Camille Grammer’s home in Ramirez Mesa.

Malibu, home to many of L.A. County’s most expensive homes and rentals, was wracked by the blaze — more than $1.6 billion in property was damaged or destroyed during the week-long fire.

But the Woolsey Fire burned much more than just Malibu. The blaze destroyed nearly 1,650 structures and caused around $5 billion in damage around northeast L.A. County and Ventura County. [Yolanda]Dennis Lynch
