Creek Fire

The home of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, located on a vineyard outside of Los Angeles, is "burning down" in Southern California's wildfires, according to an NBC News report on Wednesday. "This is the $30-million house and vineyard property that is owned by Rupert Murdoch", NBC Los Angeles reported.

Moraga posted a statement on its Twitter account: "We are watching the situation unfold very carefully along with everyone else".

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. "Our main concern at the moment is for the safety of our neighbors and first respoders".

Inside Murdoch's property, Moraga Vineyards, a temperature-controlled wine storage shed burned after which firefighters tried to douse the flames but realised that it was not possible.

A winery employee, reached by phone, could not confirm to Variety whether the property or its facilities had been affected by the fire but said that all employees had been evacuated.
