“I just want to let everyone know we made it out,” said close pal Sophia Hutchins on her Instagram Story, showing Jenner in the car with her. “Both of us made it out, the dogs made it out, a few of our belongings made it out. A few of our belongings made it out and we are safe, and that’s all that matters.”
