Actor Johnny Galecki, star of "The Big Bang Theory," thanked firefighters for their efforts in a post on Instagram on Thursday.
Galecki's vacation home along Parkhill Road east of Santa Margarita was destroyed in the Hill Fire on Monday.
His Instagram post showed him standing in the ashes of his home, hugging a firefighter, and read "Thank you to the brothers and sisters of @calfire It is the profound risks that you accept and the sacrifices you and your families make that keep us safe. Thanks also to the many of you who have reached out in support. It is far from lost on us here."
