Rupert Murdoch's Vineyard Estate Damaged Amid LA Wildfires

Rupert Murdoch's Vineyard Estate Damaged Amid LA Wildfires”

Video from the local NBC News affiliate showed flames at what the newscaster said was believed to be the 21st Century Fox mogul's 16-acre estate, which includes 13 acres of grape vines, Variety reported.

The fire brought back memories of the 1961 Bel-Air fire, in which movie stars including Maureen O'Hara and Fred MacMurray fought to save their homes - a seminal event that fed apocalyptic visions of Los Angeles for decades to come.

The wildfire devastating the Los Angeles area is threatening a $30m ranch owned by Rupert Murdoch.

Orange flames peek through heavy smoke from the Skirball fire in Bel-Air. While many residents evacuated for their personal safety, their property was left to burn - as is seen with Murdoch's real estate.

The home of Rupert Murdoch, located on the Moraga Estate vineyard just outside of Los Angeles, has been caught in the blazes of the wildfires now burning their way across the greater L.A. area.

The fire erupted around 5 a.m.in Brentwood just east of the 405 freeway, across from the Getty Center.

According to the real estate news site Curbed, Murdoch's home was valued at close to $30 million when he purchased it.

Murdoch, who lives there with his wife Jerry Hall when he's in L.A., told Bloomberg in July that he bought the vineyard after it appeared in the fifth edition of Wall Street Journal Mansion.

In Ventura, some 80km northwest of Los Angeles, more than 1,000 firefighters battled the largest, the Thomas Fire, which has already destroyed more than 150 homes and threatened thousands more. The fire is now being fought by hundreds of firefighters, Los Angeles Daily News reports, and at least four homes have already been destroyed.
