Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly hired a private team of firefighters to protect their house from the California wildfire.

The couple are said to have hired their own firefighters to tackle the blaze, which was quickly approaching their house and neighbourhood.

According to TMZ, the pair protected their $60 million mansion by controlling the fire and as a result, neighbouring houses also escaped the blaze.

Sources said that the firefighters dug ditches to break up the fire and used hoses to put out the flames.

Neighbours of the famous family have thanked the celebs for also protecting their homes, as the Kardashian-West house was an a cul de sac next to a forest and if it went up in flames, the fire would have easily spread across the entire neighbourhood.

Kim, Kanye and their three children were forced to evacuate their home on Friday and stayed in a hotel, while Khloe and Kourtney were also forced to leave their houses.
