Murdoch confirmed the evacuation to The Hollywood Reporter and added "based on what we are seeing on TV there may be damage to some buildings in the upper vineyard area".

Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch's $30 million property in Bel Air, California has been set ablaze by the sweeping wildfires ravaging the state, according to Los Angeles' NBC affiliate.

The situation at Moraga Bel Air is very fluid at the moment.

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.

"We believe the winery and house are still intact".

People on Murdoch's estate were among those who had been ordered to evacuate; with NBC4 reporting that the estate was "burning down" although it is unclear if this also referred to Murdoch's house itself, which Bloomberg reported he bought as part of the estate he paid $28.8 million for in 2013.

Lopez bought a $28 million estate in Bel Air a year ago while Aniston owns a $20 million property in the neighborhood, the Hollywood Reporter said.

The Skirball fire broke out early Wednesday morning and has already stretched more than 100 acres.

Although no casualties have been reported, the fires have forced mass evacuations, cancellation of classes at dozens of schools and resulted in the loss of power at more than 250,000 homes in Ventura County.

"The winery and vineyard, and the wine were a great bonus". The fire is now being fought by hundreds of firefighters, Los Angeles Daily News reports, and at least four homes have already been destroyed.
