Rupert Murdoch's Bel-Air Home and Vineyard Targeted by Los Angeles Fire

California wildfire

But it's the smaller (comparatively) of the blazes that's now torching its way through the exclusive Bel-Air region, threatening scores of celebrity homes including that of News Corp boss and noted climate change denier, Rupert Murdoch. Even Rupert Murdoch's Moraga Estate vineyard is not immune to the flames, which NBC 4 in Los Angeles reported was being consumed in the 125 acre brush fire.

As evening fell Wednesday, the so-called Skirball fire had scorched 190 hectares of thick chaparral, destroying four homes on Moraga Drive at the bottom of the canyon and Casiano Drive on its west ridge. While many residents evacuated for their personal safety, their property was left to burn - as is seen with Murdoch's real estate.

The fire erupted around 5 Brentwood just east of the 405 freeway, across from the Getty Center. The media mogul purchased the estate in 2013 for $28.8 million, according to Bloomberg.

"It was simply stunning", Murdoch told the Wall Street Journal after he bought the Moraga Vineyards estate. The main residence is 7,724 square foot and the property includes a two bedroom guest house and a 4,400 square-foot office building.

She said firefighters stepped in to douse the flames with the aid of helicopters and that other storage sheds, the winery itself and the estate's unoccupied house are not damaged.

The Skirball fire has burned more than 150 acres as Santa Ana winds continue to create risky conditions. The fire is now being fought by hundreds of firefighters, Los Angeles Daily News reports, and at least four homes have already been destroyed.
