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. The vineyard is located near the 405 Freeway, which has been partially closed down.
Murdoch's 16-acre Moraga Vineyards estate appeared to be burning as of Wednesday morning, according to a local NBC News affiliate in Los Angeles.
"We believe the winery and house are still intact". The main residence is 7724 square foot (717 sqm) and the property includes a two-bedroom guest house and a 4400 square-foot office building.
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.
Murdoch's property at 1050 Moraga Ave. was bought in August 2013 for $US28.8 million ($A40.3 million).Читайте также: Trump Jr. says he talked to Hope Hicks about meeting
