Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hired private firefighters to save their home

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hired private firefighters to save their mansion from the California wildfires, according to US reports.

And the famous couple are said to have helped keep the flames away from their neighbours’ homes while they were at it.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her rapper husband evacuated their home with their three children, North, Saint and Chicago, on Thursday.

Kanye took to Twitter on Friday to assure his fans that they were all safe from the blaze, but within hours, there were reports that the wildfire was approaching their home in Hidden Hills.

Kim posted on the site: "I heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment.

"It doesn’t seems like it is getting worse right now, I just pray the winds are in our favor. God is good. I’m just praying everyone is safe"

She added:" Fire Fighters, I love you and thank you for doing all that you can to keep us safe"

But now, it’s being reported that Kim and Kanye’s home was saved after they hired their own private firefighters.

Sources close to the couple have told TMZ that the couple called in a private team to battle the flames on their property.

It’s said the team were armed with hoses and tirelessly worked to dig ditches to create a fire break around the property.

The private crew is reported to have saved not only Kim and Kanye’s $60 million mansion, but also countless other homes on the block – and their neighbours have thanked them.

It was also reported at the time that the home of Kim’s former stepdad Caitlyn Jenner had burned down.

While representatives for Caitlyn confirmed to Mirror Online on Friday that Caitlyn was safe, the condition of the home she shares with rumoured-fiancee Sophia Hutchins and their pet dogs was unknown.

However, Caitlyn and Sophia have since taken to Instagram to reveal that their house was untouched by the blaze.

In a video, Caitlyn showed the surrounding Hollywood Hills that were "scorched".

The pair said they were thinking of everyone who had been affected by the blaze.

Mirror Online has contacted Kim and Kanye’s representatives for comment.
