Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Hired Private Firefighters, Helped Stop Blaze From Reaching Neighbors

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Hired Private Firefighters, Helped Stop Blaze From Reaching Neighbors

Kim Kardahsian and Kanye West‘s neighbors in their Hidden Hills neighborhood in California are reportedly very happy with the couple.

The A-list couple’s house, which was in the mandatory evacuation zone, is at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field. If their house caught fire, their neighbors believed that “it would start a domino effect on the whole neighborhood,” TMZ reports.

Well, Kim and Kanye hired private firefighters to stave off the fire from reaching their home. Apparently, “the team was armed with hoses, and also tirelessly dug ditches to create a fire break.”

The fires did not damage their homes or the neighbors’ homes, and the site is reporting that they spoke to some of the neighbors who are thanking the couple!

    They did not hire private firefighters. There is no such thing. Their insurance company sent out a special team that aids in fire prevention. It’s an option afforded to many wealthy policyholders in fire prone states.

    They are the most disgusting , sickening pieces of crap

  • MyName

    They should be donating to help all affected like so many others have been.

  • ChanandlerBong

    I was evacuated from my house because of these fires. If you think that they’re pieces of crap for saving their home as well as the homes of others, YOU are the one who’s not only disgusting, but transparently envious, which is one of the seven deadly sins. Good luck to you.

  • ChanandlerBong

    How do you know they aren’t? Jesus Christ you people are a bunch of fucking idiots.

  • ChanandlerBong

    Fire prevention specialists are exactly what it sounds like: prevention. That’s different than fighting an active fire. I would ask how you think you know what they did or what exists, but the answer would make me too sad for you.

  • MyName

    Who said I knew they weren’t?
    You’re not a good one to lecture anyone considering your last sentence. Go play with others while I add place you on my ignore list.

    Man. if I was forced to evacuate my home, JJ is the LAST place you would find me commenting

  • ChanandlerBong

    LOL I’m actually home now. Also, what you’re saying is unsurprisingly moronic – what do you think you would be doing if you were evacuated? Fighting fires?

    I’m actually perfectly suited, because unlike you, I’m not a fucking moron making assumptions about people I don’t know (“they should be”). Also unlike you, I know that “add place” is redundant.

    Did I stutter, jackwagon? What part of ‘they didn’t hire private firefighers’ is unclear? They don’t get to call up some private company and say “send firefighters” its at the sole discretion of their insurance company whether to send these “specialists” out to protect them from having to make a massive payout. These “private firefighters” do not have access to water lines and public resources – they clear brush and bring their own gel retardant to spray around – something homeowners can do themselves, does that make us all firefighters? Furthermore they are NOT allowed in evacuated areas and CalFire has made it abundantly clear they are opposed to this unregulated insurance company practice. Keep talking $hit, though. I can go all day

    Loved your comment :)

  • ChanandlerBong

    HAHAHAHA your response is hilarious considering that you still don’t understand the fires were already burning. On their street. You said they didn’t hire private firefighters. And? Who the fuck are you that I should put a cent of credence into what you’re saying vs. what’s being reported on the news, you brainless twit?

    And guess what – many people were milling about in “evacuated areas”. Source? I live in an evacuated area.

    I’m not surprised you have all day, since you’re clearly way too stupid to be hired by anyone, so maybe spend some of your abundant free time looking up the difference between “prevent” and “extinguish”, you absolute, total fucking moron.

    This family is hilarious. This information was obviously fed
    to TMZ by their BFF Kris Jenner so that alone should tell you how exaggerated and embellished it is. They want is to believe they “hired private fire fighters” like that’s even possible? And even if it was, why run to TMZ to tell them all about it? Oh that’s right…anything for press!
    Furthermore, TMZ claim their house is worth 60 million…they purchased it for 20 million a few years ago and have yet to finish renovating it, but now they want us to believe it’s gone up in value by 40 million?
    It’s amazing to me how they manage to spin any story to make themselves sounds amazing and wealthy and beloved. Even in times of tragedy such as this.
    Disgusting and trashy people.

  • CaliGirl

    Kim is that you?

  • Fire

    Hahahaha. Prob the Wookie.

  • gracey1717

    You “burned” her. 😂

  • ChanandlerBong

    The “are you the subject of the article pretending to be a commenter?” joke? Good Lord – didn’t that end with “not!” and “wassup!”?

  • ChanandlerBong

    You sure know a lot about a family you hate, and sure spend a lot of time thinking and writing about them. The funniest part is each time you click on an article about them, and comment, you’re ensuring they keep getting coverage.

  • Vanessa Graten

    The “Funniest part” is how you didn’t respond to any of the points I made…you just resorted to the same old boring “why do you spend so
    much time on celebrities you hate?”

    Not that I have to explain anything to you but FWIW I’m interested in celebrity gossip and I can’t seem to get my daily dose of it without coming across some BS article about this family. I’ve always been good at ignoring them but I’ve had enough of the LIES and the manipulation. The fact that they used a TRAGEDY to once again remind
    the public how great and wealthy they are is appalling and was enough for me to leave a comment.

    Anyway, you’re either on their payroll or a delusional teenager who begged her parents to get instagram for the sole purpose of leaving love heart emojis on Kylie Jenners photoshopped photos. Don’t bothered responding unless you have something logical to say…

    God they are annoying.. this is privilege any way you put it.. my house burned down in 1996 and it’s horrendous… but these rich celebrities are annoying because they’re rich!! I think people are secretly pleased that they have lost everything… it’s kind of karmic justice for having so much… material things… this is a testament to how physical things are not important at all!!

  • ChanandlerBong

    Oh honey, LOL I’m not reading this! The last comment I read of yours was a rant about Kardashians – there’s no way I’m going to read what is most assuredly a longer, more maniacal rant about them. Good luck to you; I hope you get the help you desperately need.

  • Vanessa Graten

    Oh yeah, I’m the one that needs help. I gave sound arguments and you ranted about not reading…ok then.
    Bye

  • ChanandlerBong

    LMAO well, you clearly and unsurprisingly don’t know what rant means. And yes, a person who devotes time to learning information about a family they hate, and reading articles about them, and ranting about them publicly, does need help. I don’t expect you to realize that, because people who need help often don’t.

    Would you kindly fuck off?! I calmly gave you my opinion and you insulted me over some family that doesn’t know you and doesn’t care about you. And you think I need help? I’m not the one who worships vapid, vain, shallow and money hungry pieces of trash. This is my last response to you!!

  • ChanandlerBong

    You were not at all calm, and I’ve never said or suggested that I worship the family. You are imagining things, which only supports my assessment that you need some help.

    You said “Bye” once before, yet here you are again, so I really hope you mean it this time.
