Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Hire Private Firefighters To Stop Wildfires

However, we have a rare moment of awesome coming from the land of Ye. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were forced to evacuate their homes last week, but the couple reportedly hired private firefighters to not only save their own homes but also, their neighbors'. While the area was evacuated, they sent their private firefighters in with hoses and tools to dig ditches for a fire break.

Thankfully, the firefighters managed to save Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's $60M home, but they also saved several other houses on the block. Kim, Kanye and their kids, North, Saint and Chicago stayed in a hotel nearby during their evacuation.

The only question left is: How rich do you have to be to afford private firefighters?

Kardashian posted an Instagram story about the fire as she returned to Los Angeles on Thursday evening, capturing a view of the blaze from her private jet and asking her 120 million followers to pray for the area.

The Woolsey Fire has burned 91,572 acres and an estimated 370 structures, though the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection officials said that only 15% of the burn area has been surveyed.

Cyrus tweeted that she was "completely devastated" by the fires affecting her community.
