Oprah Winfrey and Rob Lowe aren't the only celebs affected by the raging wildfires ripping across Southern California this weekend.

Snoop Dogg's family members and staff were among 26,000 residents forced to evacuate their homes on Sunday due to an uncontrollable blaze that has already destroyed 150 homes and threatens 3,500 more.

The Grammy award-winning rapper owns a multi-million dollar home in The Country Estates, an exclusive, gated, hillside community in Diamond Bar, Calif. A reporter for Los Angeles radio's KNX-1070 caught up with a few of Snoop's entourage who said they were on their way to retrieve possessions and memorabilia from his house.

The rapper was not home at the time of the evacuations, according to the radio report.

As part of the Triangle Complex fire, the inferno has already scorched 10,000 acres and spans four counties: Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside.
