Firefighters have been working tirelessly to put out the raging wildfires in California.

But it seems that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West paid for extra pairs of hands to save their neighbourhood.

Private firefighters – which are actually a thing – where allegedly hired by the couple to protect their home and the surrounding houses from being burnt to the ground.

Their $60 million mansion is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, which means if it did catch fire, it would propose a risk to other homes.

TMZ reported that the private firefighters dug ditches around their property to stop the spread of the fire.

Their actions saved the family home and their neighbours' houses too.

A move which was welcomed by grateful residents – so Kim and Kayne can probably expect a lot of thank you dinner invites.
