Other musicians have taken action to help those affected by the disaster.

In November, Metallica donated $100,000 to support the aid effort, writing from the band’s All My Hands Foundation page on Facebook: “We would like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need and our first responders in any way you can by donating money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies or by giving your time volunteering or providing temporary housing. Every little bit helps.”

Stars including Dave Grohl and Lady Gaga also helped in the relief effort by providing food and supplies for both people affected by the blaze and the fire crews that worked tirelessly to control the fires.
