While fires are spreading through parts of California, celebrities have resorted to social media to encourage donations, support law enforcement, and some have even gone as far as delivering goods themselves.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took it one step further by hiring private firefighters to protect their homes and their neighborhoods, according to TMZ.

The flames were on their property on Friday and they were forced to evacuate, but their team of private firefighters were armed with snakes to extinguish the fire. They also dug dug to stop the fire from spreading.

Because Kim and Kanye's house is on the edge of a field, the fire would have spread very quickly if the team could not contain it. TMZ talked to several neighbors who were reportedly very grateful to the West team because it saved their own homes.
