Brie said: "When we moved, literally two days later, we evacuated because of the smoke. The fires weren’t far. They were close, but it wasn’t the flames that we were nervous about. All of a sudden our house got filled with smoke, so we had to go because of the little ones."

The 'Bella Twins' star feared she had made a "mistake" by choosing to move.
Speaking to the New York Post's Page Six column, she added: "My husband looked at me, and he was like, 'Brie!,' and I was kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. Did I make a mistake? Because it did make me nervous with the fires and, unfortunately, I feel like we’re seeing this happen every year. Fire season, we’re expecting a huge fire to come through California."
It comes after the siblings revealed they moved to Napa Valley from Phoenix, Arizona.
Brie said: "Yes, I moved to Napa Valley! I feel like everyone's like, 'Duh, of course they did.' My sister and I have always loved Napa Valley. We have a wine here. We're always here."
Whilst Nikki added: "And guess what? I'm doing it with you. There's the big surprise. I'm also moving to Napa Valley - well not just me, but my family, Artem [Chigvintsev], Matteo and I."
Brie - who also has daughter Birdie with husband Daniel Bryan - confirmed the news after reports swirled when fans spotted their houses were up for sale.
She said: "It was a very last-minute move that happened very spontaneously, but the cameras of 'Total Bellas' of course caught everything. And I feel like I should just let the magic happen on TV; let you guys find out on television why we decided to move, because it is a little bonkers ... We majorly downsized. We wanted to be more simple. You guys have always known how Bryan and I are, so we just were like, we need to get back to who we were before kids and let's simplify our life and live more country. And we're doing it."
