Murdoch, the billionaire who controls 21st Century Fox Inc, said wildfires appear to have damaged some structures on the Moraga Estate vineyard where he lives.

As Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti declared a state of emergency due to the fast-moving Skirball fire that began blaze through the outskirts of the city just before 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, many multimillion dollar estates in the surrounding neighborhoods of Bel Air, Brentwood, and Mandeville Canyon, home to the Hollywood elite, are in the path of the fire. The estate is located near the 405 freeway, which authorities have closed.

"We believe the winery and house are still intact". NBC reported that staff at the villa was ordered to evacuate the property, which features a 7,500-square-foot house that's surrounded by olive trees and chicken.

Murdoch reportedly paid $28.8 million in 2013 to purchase the Moraga Estate vineyard; he discovered in the "Mansion" section of the Wall Street Journal, one of the newspapers the Australian-born media mogul owns.

Roxanne Langer at Moraga Estate said a temperature-controlled wine storage shed burned after the fire erupted before dawn Wednesday but was unclear how much wine was lost.

NOW it's official: Lupe is running for governor
Valdez's campaign said she will "officially notify" Dallas County commissioners of her decision to run for governor this morning. Lately, however, she seemed to care less about being transparent or cultivating the media.


The Skirball fire has burned more than 150 acres as Santa Ana winds continue to create risky conditions.

Around 1:30p a firefighter with Los Angeles County drove by Murdoch's property and noticed a portion of his vineyards on fire with gray smoke filling the air.

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday his thoughts and prayers were with everyone in the path of the wildfires.

"THANK YOU to all First Responders for your incredible work".

Bloomberg reported that the property is within the current evacuation zone, and NBC is reporting that it has caught fire.
