    Wow. Hope he makes it through alright. I had the same thing happen to me 19 years ago, lost everything.

    I know it's wrong to say, but there are some celebrities it really wouldn't have bothered me if one of their houses went up in smoke.
    BUT not him. He's a nice guy, and it was depressing seeing him walk through what was left of his house. feel really bad for the guy. He's made me laugh a lot in my life.
    They said he lost everything, nothing was evacuated. But everybody seemed to be ok. I hope he can bounce back. Good Luck Doc.

    Yeah I agree. I hope everything works out for him, he definitely seems like a good guy.

    I agree he seems like great guy. there are tons of deserving celebrities who are self rightous assbags who I wouldn't mind seeing get burned out of their homes (Tom Cruise, Seth MacFarlane, Michael Moore, Madonna, etc)

    There's video of Lloyd looking over the remains of his home up on ABC News:

    And Dr. Floyd's house burned down in the same fire:

    I hope that he can pull out of this, at least he wasn't there to be injured.

    Hopefully someone will find a way to go back in time to warn him about this.

    :( 

    Damn!

    I know people have said it, but I'll say it again anyway:

    Why did it have to be someone like him? He seemed like a nice person overall, never was an annoying media presence, and almost everything he touches is entertaining and top-quality. If this happened to Tom Cruise, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, etc, I wouldn't even care. Might even laugh.

    But Christopher Lloyd? It's just not fair!

    Crap. Still, he is alive and well, and still has cash to buy another house. I think we should be more concerned about people who lost their homes, and who don't have funds to buy new ones.

    That's how I feel about it. I feel bad for the people who will be living in tents this winter because they have nowhere else to go now. At least they're in southern CA instead of a more northern state and so won't be freezing to death.

    Edit:Something just occurred to me - are there any known TF fans who lost their collections in these fires?

    Damn! This is quite a saddening story.:( 

    Rather ironic that it happened to his character in BTTF, but he didn't deserve this to happen to him.:( 

    I really do hope he can move on and rebuild.
