Phillies manager Gabe Kapler is among the homeowners who lost their house in Southern California's wildfires.

Kapler, his ex-wife and two sons lived in the Malibu house and evacuated last week. A friend sent him photos over the weekend showing only a steel staircase remained of the property, about a mile from the Pacific Ocean.

Kapler moved to Philadelphia after the Phillies hired him last October, but kept the house for his family.

He led the Phillies to an 80-82 record in his first season.
