Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have hired a private team of firefighters to save their millions villa for the devastating forest fires in California. According to TMZ, the neighbors of the couple also benefited from the additional deployment of the fire brigade.
The couple’s house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field. If their home were to go up in flames, that would have a domino effect on the entire neighborhood, according to TMZ.
The family itself was no longer present in the 60 million dollar house. On the advice of the authorities they had been evacuated to a nearby hotel.
Other stars like singer Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus and Niel Young were less fortunate. Their houses went up in flames. Miley said she was devastated by the loss, but at the same time said she was grateful that she, her husband Liam Hemsworth and their pets were able to get to safety in time. “Terrible what the fire did to the community in which I live. I’ve had luck. My animals and the love of my life have been taken away safely and that is the only thing that counts now. ”
Completely devestated by the fires affecting my community. I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for
