Johnny Galecki has lost his home after it burned down during a massive wild fire.
The ‘Big Bang Theory’ actor thankfully wasn’t at the property when a blaze ripped through the community of San Luis Opispo, California on Monday night, destroying many properties as it tore through 1,200 acres of land.
But Johnny gave thanks to the California Fire and Sheriff’s Office for their response and efforts to contain the fire.
He said in a statement to TMZ: “I know you guys are fighting the good fight to keep us safe. So very relieved no one has been hurt.”
He added: “My heart goes out to all in the area who are also experiencing loss from this vicious fire, the threat of which we live with constantly, which may seem crazy to some but we do so because living in our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile.
“It’s never the structures that create a community — it’s the people. And if the people of Santa Margarita have taught me anything it’s that, once the smoke has cleared, literally and figuratively, it’s a time to reach out and rebuild.”
The 42-year-old actor hasn’t visited the property since it burned down but said he plans to visit the site, which is located about 190 miles outside Los Angeles, once it’s safe to do so to see if he can salvage any of his belongings.
