Over 300,000 people have been evacuated due to the fires in California, which have destroyed some 7,000 homes and devastated more than 42,000 hectares of the state.

A number of other celebs, including Camille Grammer, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke, Lady Gaga, Orlando Bloom, Caitlyn Jenner and many others, were forced to evacuate the Woolsey Fire. West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, looked out for not only themselves, but also their neighbors by calling in a team of private firefighters as California's devastating Woolsey wildfire was bearing down on their homes. If their place caught fire, it would quickly spread to the other homes in the area.

Being neighbors with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian probably has its positives and negatives. KimYe hired a private team of firefighters to try and stop the fire from catching onto their property. Their Hidden Hills house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field. "I want to take a moment to thank all of the incredibly fearless firefighters, servicemen, first responders, volunteers and all of those who are working tirelessly to protect our lives and our homes", Jenner said.


To try and prevent that from happening, the Wests weren't ready to depend on the already overburdened pubic fire department in the area, instead taking the step of hiring a team of their own armed with water hoses to fight off the blaze, digging copious ditches to create a "fire break" to prevent further spreading as well.

According to TMZ, the couple made a decision to invest money in ensuring that their Hidden Hills mansion had the best protection against the fires, which apparently had a domino effect in safeguarding the rest of neighbourhood.
