 The “Lake Fire” has devastated over 13,000 acres within days and is now threatening the iconic Neverland Ranch, once home to Michael Jackson. By Sunday, the blaze was within one mile of the 2,700-acre property, reported RMG News.

The fire first igniting on Friday at 3:48 p.m. southeast of Santa Maria has prompted evacuation orders for Figueroa Mountain Road, Tunnel Road, and the Figueroa Campground.

Neverland Ranch, owned by Jackson from 1988 until he died in 2009, was purchased by billionaire Ron Burkle for $22 million in 2020. The rapidly advancing fire poses a significant threat to this historic estate, highlighting the urgent need for firefighting efforts to contain the blaze and protect the surrounding areas.
