Sharing a photo of her beloved pet, Delevingne wrote that her heart was "broken."


Delevingne has been performing in the musical's cabaret show at London's West End Odeon Theater since March 11, when a fire broke out in her two-story, multi-million dollar Studio City mansion. According to Los Angeles television station KTLA5, the Los Angeles Fire Department received news of the fire around 4 a.m. About 100 firefighters arrived and helped ensure her nanny and two cats safely exited the 6,650-square-foot home.

After the fire, Delevingne didn't know if her cat had escaped. Alongside a photo of them, she wrote: "My heart is broken today. I don't believe it. Life can change in a moment so appreciate what you have."

However, Delevingne later let her followers know that the two pets were safe. "My sincere gratitude to all the firefighters and people who came to help. They are alive!!" she wrote. "Thank you firefighters." She also showed photos of their rescue.

Firefighters extinguished the flames after Delevingne's nanny and cat were safely out of the home. According to the Associated Press, it took more than two hours for the roof to finally collapse. Two firefighters were injured on the job, KTLA reported. One of the people was injured in a "ladder incident" and the other was treated for "minor smoke inhalation".

Delevingne's parents, Charles and Pandora, who were in London to watch her perform , spoke to TMZ about the situation she's been facing since the fire. When they spoke to the media, the family still didn't know the whereabouts of the cats, with Pandora saying Delevingne had been in the house "his whole life."

The Los Angeles Fire Department has not revealed the cause of the fire, but Charles speculated it was an electrical fire. He thought it might have been caused by "power lines," saying, "It's very windy out there."

Meanwhile, it seems Delevingne still plans to perform in Cabaret . As they say, the show must go on.
