How did the fires in California start? The Kardashian sisters think they know. Kim and Khloe Kardashian tweeted separately about the Santa Susana Field Lab, a former nuclear testing plant in Ventura County.
"Shocked & furious to learn smoke from the #WoolseyFire started at former nuclear testing site, Santa Susana Field Lab, & is potentially radioactive," Kim shared. "Sign now to demand that incoming governor @GavinNewsom gets this site cleaned up."
Kim linked to a change.org petition titled "No More Kids With Cancer: Clean Up The Santa Susana Field Lab."
The petition was launched by Melissa Bumstead, mother of 4-year-old Grace. Grace has a rare form of cancer that Melissa claims she developed from living 20 miles away from the site.
"Our family lives ONLY 20 miles from a nuclear disaster site, Santa Susana Field Lab, and we didn’t even know it – the #WoolseyFire started there, and smoke could be carrying radioactive chemicals," Kim tweeted. "We need @GavinNewsom to do something – sign the petition."
The cause of the fire is not known, but it did start near the site. On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said they found "no discernible level of radiation in the tested area."
Hundreds remain missing in the fires, and the death toll has risen to at least 58.
KIM ON KANYE’S POLITICS
Meanwhile, Kim is also opening up about her husband Kanye West’s sometimes controversial politics.
Speaking at Variety’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit in West Hollywood on Wednesday, she explained that she actually schooled him after his infamous White House visit in the fall.
"I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator," Kardashian told the audience, according to The Daily Mail. "But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics."
She explained that while West likes President Trump personally, he isn’t aware of his politics.
"He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he’s the same person and friendly with him now," the mother of three added. "I could also co-exist with someone and still have different political views."
