Kim Kardashian has appeared on The Ellen Show recently, to speak out about the Californian fires and to donate money to their community in order to help it rebuild. 

The couple's home narrowly missed getting burnt down by the major fires at the start of November and Kanye and Kim ended up hiring private firefighters in order to help protect their house.

Kim explained that they had the entire neighborhood in mind when hiring the firefighters, explaining that had they not, the whole neighborhood would have burnt down. 

"Our house is right on the end of a big park, so the whole park had caught fire and if our house went, then every other house would go," she said. "I don't take that for granted, and that was such a blessing that we were able to do that."
