Wildfires Are Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's Los Angeles Home

Wildfires Are Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's Los Angeles Home

"From initial reports, we're hearing it belongs to Rupert Murdoch". Local NBC news coverage had previously reported that Murdoch's house was on fire, but that status has since been downgraded to "still standing" for the time being.

Authorities have ordered evacuations for "large swaths" of Bel-Air, according to the Los Angeles Times.

No casualties have yet been reported but thousands of homes are threatened by the fires, including in the luxury Bel Air area.

On Moraga Drive on Wednesday, gray smoke surrounded Murdoch's property, but the compound burned.

Firefighters scrambled Wednesday afternoon to make progress against the Skirball fire burning in Bel-Air before the return of strong winds that could blow the fire across the 405 Freeway.

"The property was evacuated but based on what we are seeing on TV there may be some damage to some buildings in the upper vineyard area", he said in a statement on Twitter.

The billionaire's $28.8 million, 16-acre estate includes the home he shares with his wife Jerry Hall, along with a winery and vineyards-all of which are under threat from the wildfires. We believe the winery and house are still intact.

The Skirball fire, threatening Murdoch's property, has swept through more than 150 acres of land, with winds helping the fire spread-although the Los Angeles Fire Department said those winds had now died down.

In the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles, the Creek Fire destroyed at least 30 homes, blackened more than 11,000 acres and forced the evacuation of 2,500 homes and a convalescent centre north of Interstate 210 on Tuesday.
