Singer's house burns to the ground in LA wildfire outbreak

Soul legend STEVIE WONDER's Los Angeles home has been burned down by the Californian wildfire outbreak, according to reports.

A state of emergency was declared by GOVERNOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER for Los Angeles and Ventura counties earlier this week following the outbreak of blazes across the region.

But the alert did not come in time to save Wonder's Porter Ranch home, which has reportedly gone up in flames - and the singer is devastated.

A source tells New York gossip column PageSix, "Everything was destroyed - all of Stevie's memorabilia, photos, musical instruments, history, clothing, furniture, everything.

"It's all gone. It was his main residence and he is utterly devastated.

Stevie's had to put his tour and appearances on hold while he deals with this."
