Report: Rupert Murdoch's LA home 'burning down' in wildfire

The dramatic Skirball fire, which erupted in Los Angeles early Wednesday, may have reached Rupert Murdoch's Bel-Air estate and has threatened other multimillion estates in nearby neighborhoods whose star residents include Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Southern California has been witnessing numerous fires burning over acres of land, ravaging homes and the winds are further making the wildfires so destructive that it is getting hard for the firefighters to tackle the situation.

Later, the Los Angeles Times reported that the fire had grown near Murdoch's estate, but had not burned the property's buildings or vineyard. "Our main concern at the moment is for the safety of our neighbors and first respoders".

A Moraga employee whom Variety reached by phone "said that all employees had been evacuated, but could not confirm whether the property or its facilities had been directly impacted by the fire".
