Fox News Chief Rupert Murdoch’s LA Home Threatened by Fire

By Epoch Newsroom

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s Los Angeles-area home reportedly is caught in a California wildfire sweeping across the region.

The home of Murdoch, the 86-year-old executive chairman of 21st Century Fox and Fox News, is located in Bel Air and is worth about $29 million.

According to an NBC News report Wednesday, flames could be seen near the newsman’s home. The Los Angeles Times later reported that the fire had grown, but it hadn’t burned down the buildings or the vineyard on the estate.

“It was simply stunning,” Murdoch was quoted by the LA Times as saying of his purchase of the property. “The winery and vineyard, and the wine were a great bonus. I very quickly fell in love.”

The estate is trapped in the 150-acre Skirball fire, which is also threatening the homes of other celebrities in the area.

Murdoch’s Moraga Bel Air issued a tweet on Wednesday, saying, “We are watching the situation unfold very carefully along with everyone else. Our main concern at the moment is for the safety of our neighbors and first responders.”

The Skirball fire has shut down Interstate 405 and prompted evacuations, CBS Los Angeles reported.
