I pray everyone is safe.” She also shared an image of her pajama-clad kids sitting on the pavement after the evacuation, writing, “North is always a mood.”Kardashian West’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian, also took to her Instagram Story to reveal she was evacuating. She shared a picture of her car trunk filled with belongings and wrote, “I pray that everyone is kept safe and protected from these fires. No Calabasas tonight.”Their younger sister, Khloe Kardashian, wrote she was hunkered down with brother Rob Kardashian, his daughter, Dream, and her own daughter, True. I am with Rob, Dream and True and I am up keeping watch!
