Rupert Murdoch's Bel-Air Home and Vineyard Targeted by Los Angeles Fire

The 16-acre Moraga Vineyards estate has a Hollywood connection. The property has been evacuated but based on what we're seeing on TV there may be damage to some buildings in the upper vineyard area.

Murdoch bought the Moraga estate as a home for when he and wife, Jerry Hall, visit the U.S. west coast.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said the blazes had spread across 150 acres with zero containment by 10am (6pm GMT).

Almost 200,000 people have been evacuated from their homes, and 150 structures have been damaged as of Wednesday morning, with California's governor Jerry Brown declaring a state of emergency. The Santa Ana winds, which blow westward from the California desert, were forecast to reach 130kph on Thursday. Later, the Los Angeles Times reported that the fire had grown near Murdoch's estate, but had not burned the property's buildings or vineyard. "There will be no ability to fight fire in these kinds of winds". In the posh Bel Air area, wildfire has destroyed "at least four and possibly six homes" and forced evacuation.

Hundreds of homes have already been destroyed across the Los Angeles metropolitan area and as many as five fires have closed highways, schools and museums.

Flu season could be rougher than usual this year
Flu is a contagious, viral illness that causes mild to severe symptoms that, in rare cases, can lead to death. "It's best to get it now and not wait until the flu is more widespread", Beard said.

No other wine producers have reported damage from the current fires, although many buildings in the area are now under threat from fire damage. Three firefighters who were injured and admitted to hospital are in stable condition, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The latest wildfires come two months after the deadliest set of blazes in the state's history broke out in Northern California's wine country, causing losses of almost $10 billion (Dh36.7bn).

"I encourage everyone to heed the advice and orders of local and state officials", Trump wrote on Twitter.

The largest blaze is the Thomas fire in Ventura County, just north of LA, which has devastated 65,000 acres and forced 27,000 people to flee after igniting on Monday evening.
