On Facebook they write: "We've been trying to write this post for 12 days. The chaos, sadness, grieving and gratefulness has been overwhelming.

"First we want to say how sorry and heartbroken we are for all those who have lost so much in the fires that ravaged California. Words are inadequate for this terrible loss.

"We want to thank all the firefighters, first responders, local law enforcement, local heroes and anyone who tried so hard to protect life and property. Thank you for the sacrifices you make everyday to protect and serve the people in your communities. You are a remarkable group of humans.

"Thank you to all the angels that rescued animals, gave them shelter, medical services and loving care.

"Thank you in advance to all those who are donating, organizing clothing drives, food drives, fundraisers etc. to help those impacted by the fires. You are angels on Earth.

"We cannot go home, our home survived, but our property did not. But we are one of the lucky ones. We were able to save all the really important things ... the rest is just stuff. Most importantly our family is safe.

"We wish all those impacted by the fires blessings, peace and love. We are truly sorry for your loss. In the spirit of Thanksgiving we send every good wish for recovery, condolences for the loss of life, and hope for healing in this time of grief. May we hold each other in an embrace of love and light."

Other artists whose homes were damaged or destroyed in the fire include REO Speedwagon singer Kevin Cronin, John Fogerty, Neil Young and Bad Company guitarist Howard Leese.
